    The NHS was set up to protect the health and well-being of the British Public but should not spend obscene amounts of money on non-essential procedures whist people with actual health issues suffer . the NHS should be a " Safety net " for the United Kingdom that concentrates of individuals that have essential health issues

    Therefore funding for " life style choices " operations will stop and will no longer be available on the NHS . The " Life style choices " operations are:

    - Gender Transformation Operations
    - Bariatric Operations
    - Cosmetic Surgery
    - Aesthetic plastic surgery
    - Religious Operations ( circumcision )

    Comestic and Plastic Surgery
    There is a difference between Cosmestic and plastic Surgery and they have different goals , cosmetic surgery enhances a persons appearance focuses on repairing defects to reconstruct a normal function

    Cosmetic Surgery will only be available for reconstructive surgery purposes only ,however it will be at the NHS discretion

    IVF
    From Feedback i;ve decided to reverse the decision to remove IVF Treatment from the NHS but will be under conditions as said in section 3.1 IVF Operations will be at NHS Discretion and a selection process will come into effective to make sure the candidate is suitable and treatment is effective as possible

    Religious Operations
    All Operations of a religious nature will not available or funded by the NHS


    Changes for 1st Reading

    This would simply lead to more transgender suicides and to classify it as a "lifestyle choice" when it is simply the way they are born is wrong. Stopping gastric bands would cost us money in the long run.

    But it costs more if the person stays obese and we have to pay for their health problems. It's simply cheaper.

    It seems like the Hon. member's changes are unrelated to the first reading debate.

    sometimes a bariatric surgery is needed on top of other methods. People that undergo bariatric surgery MUST fulfill some requirements and MUST also do some lifestyle changes

    I think The Right Honourable Member will find that they changes are related

    1) Members expressed that IVF Should still be funded on the NHS see Section 3 and Notes
    2) Members expressed reconstructive Cosmetic surgery should be funded again see section 3 and notes while i imagine other honourable members will want to make ammendments theses are the main ammends I found people talking about the most

    I completely agree with United regarding gastric bands and transgender ops. The gastric band I find very surprising because it is a long term saver.

    No doubt the government will do exactly the same with the SoI
