The latest white paper has come out on public health and the papers are full of comments from people telling the govt where to put their nanny state. Most doctors don't seem to care that much about public health. The govt is actually saying that McDonalds etc can set their own levels of fat and salt (people say this is like putting Dracula in charge of the blood bank) but is also setting up Public Health England which could have £4bn to spend on public health measures. GPs may get extra money for encouraging patients to lose weight. It's a bit same old, same old- it's just too difficult to get anyone to eat less fat or drink less alcohol because they like doing it.
