One in three say obese should pay for healthcare

14th March 2011

A survey of 2,000 people in Britain found that one in three thought obese people should be responsible for paying for their health care.

It also showed two thirds thought people in Britain were less healthy then they were ten years ago. Dr Katherine Tryon at PruHealth, which commissioned the study, said: 'People have realised that the nation's health is worse than even a decade ago and now the issue is whose responsibility is it to change this, which is particularly crucial at a time when there is increased pressure on healthcare finances."
