Tripe policy will "cut NHS waiting lists at a stroke" says TMB chairman.

The Tripe Marketing Board has welcomed a decision by West Wigan Clinical Commissioning Group to deny surgery on the NHS to people who don't eat tripe.

In an announcement hailed by TMB chairman Sir Norman Wrassle as "a victory for common sense," the CCG will make people who refuse to eat tripe wait for over a year for non-essential surgery. 

West Wigan CCG chairman Dr Digby Moffat said: "We are tasked with the difficult decision of providing services for an expanding population with a budget that is facing a reduction in real-terms.  By adopting this policy we are sure that demand for NHS services will fall."

The policy excludes vegans, but vegetarians will be expected to give tripe a try.  Sir Norman said: "This new policy could cut waiting lists at a stroke - it's good news for patients, good news for butchers and good news for tripe!"
