Scots GPs say obesity is not our problem
Scottish GPs are ignoring Government obesity guidelines as they believe it is a social and environmental problem, not a medical one.
Backed by the BMA, Glasgow and Lothian LMCs are refusing to run weight-loss clinics.
Dr Colin Guthrie, a Glasgow GP, said he knew from running such a clinic that doctors cannot cure obesity.
He said: 'We can't affect population change. The Government shouldn't expect it of us.'
