A new report called Action on Obesity-comprehensive care for all was published by the Royal College of Physicians in January 2013 and sets out a strong message to health professionals about the need to develop effective management pathways of obesity. The report suggests the development of multi-disciplinary teams for weight management, elaborates on GP’s role in obesity and discusses weight management for health service employees. The authors recommend a lead physician within each hospital to lead on obesity and the need for an independent group to work on obesity advocacy. They also highlight that all healthcare professionals should know “the ten essential facts” about obesity.
