Sunday Mercury Says: Sickening Scheme
CHUBBY nurses are being used as guinea pigs by an American firm more interested in market research than patient care.
Staff at Birmingham East and North Primary Care Trust are being offered gift vouchers for losing weight in a new programme funded by US health giant Humana.
These nurses should be caring for patients, not worrying about their waistlines.
