3 Million People Malnourished in UK

 

According to the British Association for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition, some three million people in the UK are suffering from malnutrition, or are at risk of becoming malnourished. The problem costs the UK taxpayer £13 billion a year.

According to the data, those most at risk of malnutrition was the elderly and it also found that other factors playing key roles in malnourishment were isolation and poverty. Malnourishment means more visits to a GP and longer stays in hospital.

Help the Aged spokesperson Pamela Holmes said: "Social workers, community nurses, GPs and other health professionals need to be educated and trained to spot and treat the signs of malnutrition."

  You only have to look at the child cases...  
 
to see how intersted they are.

To right they need educating; the problem I am finding with is the GPS here seem to think they are a not just a notch above the patient but a mile and do not take in what they are being informed, maybe they don’t want the truth.

It is worrying me the way it is going here, you get a great GP then they go up in status and seem to stop supporting the patient like they get in this little click.

So this story does not surprise me at all, not one bit!

  Great Idea.  
 
@Jammy-Doger
It couldn't just be that the system is broken, nope it's them damn foreigners, stealing our jobs and talking our tax money.
Yep, let's blame people who came from worse conditions and are just trying to survive.
It couldn't be corruption in high levels, CEOs losing billions and still getting bonuses. Hiding there money in off shore tax shelters. Couldn't be that at all, not even possible.
I'm glad you solved it. I'll get the pitchforks you get the guns and we'll run all those darkies out of town.
