Council member fronts BBC programme

BOMSS Council Member Professor Rachel Batterham will present a BBC programme  on Tuesday, April 11, looking at obesity, prejudice and the benefits of bariatric surgery.

Research scientist Prof Batterham, based at University College Hospital, explores whether there is “fat prejudice” against obese patients within parts of the NHS which stops them accessing potentially cost-effective surgery.

Professor Batterham says: “I have met patients who say they were made to feel “not worthy” and were denied life-changing bariatric surgery and other routine operations.”
