Obesity crisis Britain - too fat to operate

Should overweight patients be denied surgery? That's the proposal made by the NHS in Yorkshire who have been accused of delaying non-life-threatening procedures to those with an increased body mass. They say obese patients are more likely to suffer complications than those of an average weight and a reduction in obesity would save the organisation as well as taxpayers' money. But what's the solution to those overweight who require life-saving operations?
