Patients must “take greater responsibility for managing their own health”

Britain's Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock arrives to attend the weekly meeting of the cabinet in Downing Street in London

People are being encouraged to take more responsibility for managing their own health, as part of the government's NHS strategy focusing on prevention.

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".

The FBI's investigation also targets the Model 3 production targets, while the DOJ is examining Musk's privatisation statements. Founded by businessmen Martin Eberhard and Marc Tarpenning in July 2003, Tesla is an American automotive and energy company.

Mr Hancock is expected to say: "It's about people choosing to look after themselves better, staying active and stopping smoking".

That is why under the "Prevention is better than cure" plan, people in England are being told to cut back on alcohol, sugar, salt and fat in a bid to boost the nation's life expectancy by five years.

While he did not reveal how the extra funds will be allocated, Mr Hancock said "in practice" the DH's new prevention vision will require "greater funding for pre-primary, primary and community care - and support for the staff who work in these services".

"If the borders gum up and it's hard to get lorries across on the ferries because of action the European Union side takes, then we've got to make sure that people can have access to their medicines", the health secretary said.

Unveiling the policy paper at the annual meeting of the International Association of National Public Health Institutes on 5 November, Hancock said: "In the United Kingdom, we are spending £97bn of public money on treating disease and only £8bn preventing it".

Speaking on 5 Live Breakfast earlier today, he said that new technology and new data techniques allow people to be more targeted about health than previously. "Being told what to do by a government minister?' But if I say, 'If you have a particular problem with your B12 because of what your genome says, or what your genes say", then you are much more likely ... you'll be eating it for breakfast, lunch and dinner".

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".
