In the incentive program of NHS, it should pay smokers and obese people, to help them improve their lifestyles.
An advisory group belonging to the NHS has suggested that it could offer incentives to people, so as to make it easier for them in giving up their negative habits, which in turn, would help them improve their life as a whole.
Under the pilot scheme, a pregnant woman was awarded supermarket vouchers, so that, she could kick her habit of smoking cigarettes and bring some positive changes in her life.
An obese person was also given supermarket vouchers, as agreed to lose a certain amount of weight.
Kids were tempted with the awards after they agreed to eat more fruits and fresh vegetables.
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, which manages the independent Citizens Council that is made of members representing public, has supported the incentive scheme.
The wider public is now being demanded to offer their views concerning the same, which is prior to Nice considering if the policy should be implemented or not.
Sir Michael Rawlins, Chairman of Nice, approved paying people to give up the habit of smoking was a "divisive issue".
