March 2019

I am a reporter for the Daily Express online and I am currently working on a video package to look at the cost of obesity on the NHS. The plan is to speak to a surgeon, interview someone from the IEA and then we also will be interviewing a Government minister in the Department for Health and Social Care. 

But I am also looking to interview someone that has undergone bariatric surgery and discuss how it went and what their life has been like post-surgery. 

It is a video package so we would be interested in doing a video interview. We are based in London but we can definitely come out of the city to do the interview. Anyone based in the southeast of the UK would be preferable. 

In the first instance contact for more info

Media request:

We have been granted access to the bariatric unit of a major NHS hospital, around which we intend to make a sensitive and uplifting documentary, focussing on the important work they do. 

We would love to speak to some people , who suffer from obesity and who are considering barbaric surgery. It would be a non broadcast, informal interview that would purely be for our own internal use.

It would be fantastic, and very useful, for us to speak with them honestly about their reasons for considering a procedure, as well as any fears doubts or concerns they have about going through with the operation.

If anyone would be available, even just for an informal phone chat, then please do encourage them to get in touch with me on 0333 800 8899. Or drop me an email on .
