Sir Liam Donaldson

Claire Bolderson profiles Sir Liam Donaldson, the Chief Medical Officer of England. He has said that Britain is blighted by 'passive drinking' and caused uproar by proposing minimum pricing for alcohol in an effort to change the country's binge drinking culture. To many Donaldson is a visionary, driven to improve the health of the nation, but some others accuse him of meddling in people's lifestyle choices.
