  2. bNo kappa estimate was available as all services with a written partial ban policy documented that smoking was not permitted: inside the organisation, inside service vehicles and on home visit. No services had a designated indoor smoking area. Therefore, a kappa statistic was unable to be calculated as this requires a 2×2 cross-tabulation
