Diet-for-cash scheme rapped16th January 2009
MP Ann Widdecombe has said a health service trial scheme which pays people money when they lose weight is a bad financial decision.
Eastern and Coastal Kent Primary Care Trust is looking for 300 people who will be paid from £70 to £425 if they attain their weight loss goals. The MP said: "If the NHS had money to spare it would be okay but, the fact is, the NHS is short of money. We can all control our own weight. If the NHS has to prioritise then this should be at the end of its priorities."
