star this property answer text <p>We know that one of the main reasons GPs leave general practice is retirement. That is why we have put in place comprehensive measures to ensure we meet our commitment of an extra 5,000 GPs in the NHS by 2020. GP Career Plus, the GP Retention Scheme and the National GP Induction and Refresher Scheme will all help get valuable experienced GPs back into our NHS. 3,157 GP training places were also filled in 2017 – the highest number ever.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>We launched ‘Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action’ in August 2016. Our world-leading plan focuses on actions that are likely to have the biggest impact on reducing obesity in children and young people. Key measures in the plan include the soft drinks industry levy, the sugar reduction and wider reformulation programme, and helping children to enjoy an hour of physical activity every day.</p><p> </p><p>‘Childhood Obesity: A Plan for Action’ is available at:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/546588/Childhood_obesity_2016__2__acc.pdf" target="_blank">www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/546588/Childhood_obesity_2016__2__acc.pdf</a></p><p> </p><p>Current advertising restrictions in the United Kingdom on high fat, salt or sugar (HFSS) products are among the toughest in the world. Strict new rules came into effect in July 2017 banning the advertising of HFSS food or drink products in children’s media. These restrictions apply across all non-broadcast media including in print, cinema, online and in social media.</p><p> </p><p>In August 2017 we announced £5 million investment in a policy research unit on childhood obesity to provide a robust evidence, evaluation and research capability including looking at the impact of marketing on childhood obesity. We will use this, alongside other reports and data published on progress in delivering our world-leading childhood obesity plan, to determine whether sufficient progress has been made and whether alternative levers need to be considered.</p><p> </p><p>My Rt. hon. Friend, the Secretary of State for Health, has not had any recent discussions with representatives from social media companies on restricting junk food adverts to children.</p>
