THE BIG QUESTION
The big question: should the NHS provide dietary advice to staff?
The Royal College of Physicians has claimed that too many nurses are seriously overweight and setting a bad example to the people they are trying to treat.
The college has said that the health service’s response to the obesity problem is “patchy” and there should be targets to reduce staff obesity.
How can the NHS tackle the issue of obesity? Do overweight nurses set a bad example to patients? What do you think?
