    That may just be the start Chris expect more to follow, still there's plenty of private providers that will be able to do the ops but only for those with deep pockets

    Yes we're all going to have to pay more taxes to go straight into the pockets of Branson et al.

    We should get a discount for all the treatment we no longer need

    Bariatric surgery is a sham. We have in the US a TV program called my 600 pound life, about bariatric surgery. They have to be able to lose 60 to 70 pounds by diet first to be consider for the operation. They know that if you don't diet you willn't lose weight. There are many complications for does that do the operation and most after a few month have gain all the weight back. There is nothing magical about the operation even as barbaric as it is.

    Yes it's been pointed out that when you are told to eat a low carb diet and lose weight to prepare for the surgery then the surgery becomes unnecessary. Profitable though.

    The interesting thing though is to look at what the surgery actually changes, such as incretins - then find non-surgical ways to cause the same effect. <cough>low carb<cough>
