NHS will ban smokers and obese people from surgery “indefinitely”, according to proposals

Post by Admin on Thu Oct 19, 2017 6:56 am

The Conservative government’s budget cuts are forcing the NHS to abandon universal health care. Under immense pressure from Conservative austerity, the NHS will ban smokers and obese people from surgery “indefinitely”, according to proposals from Clinical Commissiong Groups (CCGs) in Hertfordshire.

Ian Eardley, senior vice president of the Royal College of Surgeons, condemned the plans:

Singling out patients in this way goes against the principles of the NHS. This goes against clinical guidance and leaves patients waiting long periods of time in pain and discomfort. It can even lead to worse outcomes following surgery in some cases. There is simply no justification for these policies, and we urge all clinical commissioning groups to urgently reverse these discriminatory measures.
