Patients should be asked about their diet, smoking and drinking habits; and exercise every time they see a health professional. Doctors should offer advice and support to vulnerable patients.

The forum's call to make 'every contact count' is designed to prevent ill-health and the massive cost burdens it imposes on the health service.
