Britain's first obesity clinic opens16th April 2012
A private clinic has opened in west London which has been specially designed to treat obese patients.
The Sudbury Clinic in Harrow features widened doorways and sofas which can support weights of 50 stone. A founder of the clinic, Shaw Somers, said: 'There's nothing more embarrassing that an overweight person going to a normal clinic, squeezing into a chair and the legs buckle. That has happened in some NHS clinics we've worked in. We felt this was an investment worth making. There's an epidemic of obesity in the UK."
