GPs face ban on routine bariatric surgery referrals amid CCG review

Comment

Lifestyle advice DOES NOT WORK! I do feel disgruntled at times that my taxes are essentially helping fund a treatment to negate the effects of bad lifestyle choices, but at the end of the day bariatric surgery can be life changing and life saving, and may help prevent a whole range of medical conditions. Are we going to stop funding smoking cessation services, exercise on prescription and alcohol services which, in my opinion, have very little impact on long term health outcomes.
