Study: GPs 'should support' patients on meal-replacement weight-loss programmes

Comment

@ManNanny, its you who are being short sighted. Nannying the patient is not 'helping' them. Oh I draw the line way further upstream, therefore before I give anyone antihypertensives, antidiabetics, etc I rationalise to them lifestyle advice, personal responsibility, the state of our budget both healthcare and welfare, before I TAKE responsibility away from them. There is a clear socialist agenda when we're continuing to increase our healthcare budget despite the Treasure being bankrupt. Oh I believe I provide BETTER healthcare by enabling people to take more responsibility for their own health, and not rely on the state. Maybe you should reconsider what you are actually doing by furthering the socialist agenda at the cost to everyone else.
