'Obesity epidemic'

In April, NHS England said it would ban sugary drinks if hospital outlets did not cut down on the number they sell.

Mr Stevens said the NHS was "stepping up" to combat an issue that was causing "an epidemic of obesity, preventable diabetes, tooth decay, heart disease and cancer"."In place of calorie-laden, sugary snacks we want to make healthier food an easy option for hospital staff, patients and visitors."

NHS staff are also being targeted as part of the move to tackle unhealthy eating, including those on overnight shifts.

Public Health England says hospitals have an "important role" in addressing obesity and not just dealing with the consequences.(BBC)
