The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Obesity launched a report on Tuesday 15th May 2018, Attlee Suite, Portcullis House. The report highlights that the NHS is failing people with obesity. A survey conducted by the Group found that four out of ten people with obesity found it difficult to access lifestyle and prevention services. 88% of respondents said they have been stigmatised, criticised or abused as a result of their obesity.
