Dr Aseem Malhotra, who works at London's Royal Free Hospital said that an "oversupply of nutritionally poor and energy dense foods" have been allowed to "hijack the very institutions that are supposed to set an example". Dr Malhotra said:
It's time for the British Medical Association to join with the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges and lobby for a ban of junk food and beverages to be sold in all hospitals. To combat obesity we must start in our own back yard.
Delegates at the BMA's annual representative meeting in Edinburgh will vote tomorrow on a motion calling for all NHS premises to display the health risks from junk food in hospital kitchens and on vending machines.
