‘More than 2m need weight loss op’
Print this story More than two million adults in England could be eligible for weight loss surgery, researchers say. Operations for weight loss – also called bariatric surgery – such as the fitting of a gastric band or gastric bypass surgery, is currently available on the NHS to treat those with potentially life-threatening obesity. Some 8,000 people receive the treatment each year, but researchers from Imperial College London say more than 5% of adults would qualify, more than 2.1 million people. Their study, published in the Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine, found that despite evidence of the cost-effectiveness of weight loss surgery, surgery rates were estimated to be a third of the NHS’s benchmark rate. The number of people eligible for surgery “far exceeds” the estimated number of people having procedures.
