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!"
