Quotes

"The government may have inserted a new clause in a legal document, but that won't be what most people consider to be legally-binding. It's woefully inadequate.”"
Background information "NHS England exists to serve the people. Our goal is high quality care for all, now and for future generations"
Retired GP Francois L P Fouin , writing in the BMJ last year, called NHS obesity a "national disgrace" and said: " Only when people are aware that obesity will affect their employment possibilities will many take their problem seriously. Already I hear cries of unfair discrimination, but recruitment to the armed forces and the police considers physique, and it is in the long term interests of obese people as well as setting an example to the rest of us. Harsh realities such as a lack of enough candidates for NHS posts makes such a policy difficult to implement, but a general directive at least advising would-be recruits not to be, say, more than 10% above average weight, except in exceptional circumstances, would be a start."
