'Patients to lose weight before NHS treatment'
"Patients could be required to stop smoking, take exercise or lose weight before they can be treated on the National Health Service, Gordon Brown has suggested." (Telegraph)
If this farcical idea is implemented, I hope that the NHS will be able to claw back the cost of several month's hospital care taken by Gordon Brown for his self-induced injury caused by playing rugby. Why should the NHS pay for maternity care, for that matter? It's due to a self-induced condition.
