RCoA response to NHSE action to reduce sales of sugar-sweetened drinks on NHS premises

The RCoA is aware of the impact that obesity has on NHS resources and the increased risk of complications for obese patients presenting for surgery. We welcome strategies and policies to help tackle obesity and over consumption of sugary drinks and we support NHS England’s efforts to reduce consumption of SSBs on NHS premises.
