The nutrition and eating habits of women in a secure psychiatric service were surveyed using in vivo participation, observation and self‐report procedures. It was predicted that high levels of obesity were partly related to unhealthy eating preferences, over‐consumption of food and environmental factors that supported an unhealthy lifestyle. The results indicated an obesogenic environment in which patients made unhealthy food choices to supplement meals. Post‐survey initiatives have led to increased satisfaction with a healthier and more palatable diet and proactive attempts to help patients engage with a therapeutic and healthier lifestyle to address obesity. The importance of environmental change, education and motivational strategies to engage patients is highlighted.

After the Chinese takeover of Hong Kong its smaller banks carved out a niche for themselves in the corporate market by embracing relationship marketing as a way of doing business. Examines the commitment‐trust dimension of the relationship marketing paradigm in the Hong Kong’s corporate banking sector. The findings show that the Hong Kong banks’ marketing strategy and a long‐term orientation were positively correlated with customer commitment and trust; communications and relational norms were positively correlated with trust; relationship benefits were positively correlated with customer commitment; and the banks’ reputation was negatively correlated with trust and commitment. To continue to be successful in the corporate sector, smaller banks must invest in the long‐term relationship marketing infrastructures to support a customer‐oriented approach. To enhance the corporate customers’ confidence further, the banks must develop parallel communication channels with their customers, show flexibility in their dealings and maximize mutual relationship benefits by minimising drastic recovery actions.
