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 GPโ€™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 โ€œthe ten essential factsโ€ about obesity.
