There are many ways in which the NHS could better utilise its funding.  Take the current "obesity epidemic". Billions are being spent treating people for obesity and all its related medical problems such as diabetes and heart disease etc.  They could save that by investing millions on proper dietary education in schools, providing subsidised gym memberships for those that need it, stopping food production corps from filling their products with unnecessary sugars and fats, all sorts of things like that.

 

Currently, we're just treating the symptoms, not the cause.

Very easy to blame the healthcare system but this is not where the problem starts. The cure to obesity is to stop eating saturated fat and sugar found in processed food and all those treats youths grow up with.

Better eating habits and more exercise starts within the community and with the government tackling bad quality food.

I did specifically mention the problems with processed foods.
