Some of the hectoring bully boys/girls in the NHS will be a trifle worried today after the DoH published its latest drive for aryan-like purity. Hunters are becoming the hunted.
Ministers tell fat NHS staff to lose weight
Overweight NHS staff are being urged to adopt healthier lifestyles and lose excess pounds to help set an example to their patients.
Ministers want overweight staff who are delivering key public health messages to enrol in weight loss programmes to shed excess pounds.
'Of the 1.2 million staff in the NHS, it is likely that around 300,000 would be classified as obese and a further 400,000 as overweight.'
The advice is being targeted initially at nurses, midwives and health visitors, but it would be hypocritical not to extend that further in the health system, wouldn't it?
But then again, how can that be possible seeing as the Chief Medical Dictator, that odious cockmonger Liam Donaldson, is severely overweight? Some insensitive types might even term him 'clinically obese'.
One would assume that, in clinically obese Liam's position, he would have had some input into the Healthy Weight, Healthy Lives: One Year On guidelines.
The report said it was these health leaders who set an example to patients through their behaviour and lifestyles.
Programmes will be developed over the next year to support NHS staff in maintaining and achieving a healthy weight.
Fucking hell, Liam! You'd better get on the phone to Ryvita sharpish, a couple of industrial pallets should be enough to satisfy your weekly gluttony. If that doesn't work, drop me a line, perhaps I could help by cutting out your oesophagus with a rusty hacksaw so you can only ingest your five a day as smoothies through a C-diff infected tube.
It's OK, I'm only joking. It's not going to happen really ... lardy Liam won't be advocating health advice which he has to follow himself any time soon, the hideous cunt.
