6Million Pounds Spent By The NHS On Patients

Spending on obese patients increased in 2012 and 2013 on equipment, reinforced beds, ambulances and trolleys. This is all due to the fact that patients are weighing up to an excess of 70 stone and therefore adjustments need to be made in order to accommodate them. Is this right though? Should we be spending tax money on this?

Personally, due to medical conditions and health problems some weight gain is going to happen, but there needs to be more emphasis on health and keeping a strict diet. Thankfully, there is a big campaign running at the moment on sugar which is a common cause of weight gain and health issues. With this campaign running there will be more educational posts being released via social media that can help educate the population into making smarter choices.
