Just watched it and erm <dons hard hat and prepares to be slated> found it rather biased. The main focus seemed to be on increasing access to surgery rather than adopting less drastic measures. The lack of input from an opposing medical view about why certain treatments may be withheld was enormously frustrating e.g. yes, your knee problem is potentially fixable with surgery but given your weight the clinical outcome is very unlikely to be positive in the long term hence it makes little sense to put you through a costly procedure which may well have life threatening complications of which you are at increased risk because of your weight etc etc etc. Could have been a very interesting programme if only more impartially presented.
