Through the obesity strategy we are committed to expanding weight management services and will provide further details on this later in the year.
We are already backing all National Health Service organisations with significant funding commitments including the Chancellor’s latest fund for the healthcare response to COVID-19, which stands at £31.9 billion for this year alone. This is in addition to the Long Term Settlement that will see NHS funding increase by £33.9 billion by 2023-24.
