Obesity: How Prejudiced Is The NHS?
Obesity: How Prejudiced Is The NHS? explores whether there is prejudice against obese patients within parts of the NHS.
Britain has a serious problem with obesity – and the medical cost is threatening to bankrupt our health service. Professor Rachel Batterham, head of the obesity services at University College Hospital and aresearch scientist, presents this current affairs documentary. In it, Rachel explores whether there is ‘fat prejudice’ against obese patients within parts of the NHS that is stopping them accessing a potentially cost-effective surgery, even when recent scientific research supports it.
