Overweight doctors and nurses will be told to lose weight under new plans from the NHS Chief Executive, Simon Stevens.
The health chief wants to see staff lead by example as he tries to plug a £30 billion black hole in the NHS budget.
Obesity is putting huge pressure on the health service and 47-year-old Mr Stevens plans to target 300,000 workers who are severely overweight.
The plans are parter of wider plans to slim down NHS costings, which include health bosses to taking standard seats on public transport rather than using first class.
