The NHS will not be sustainable without a "radical shift" towards preventing disease and illness, Health Secretary Matt Hancock has warned.
Companies should give their employees free fruit to help keep them healthy and ease pressures on the NHS, Matt Hancock has said.
Helen Donovan, professional lead for public health at the Royal College of Nursing, said: "Matt Hancock must realise his plans will start at a disadvantage as local authorities struggle with planned cuts to public health budgets of nearly 4% per year until 2021."Disadvantaged areas emerge worse off without these vital services, with life expectancy and the poorest bearing the brunt of underinvestment in public health".

Helen Donovan, from the Royal College of Nursing, welcomed the plans but said they needed to be backed up with serious investments.
"But Matt Hancock must realise his plans will start at a disadvantage as local authorities struggle with planned cuts to public health budgets of nearly four per cent per year until 2021".
