Weight Management

We are not here to judge but to advise and support you in making changes in your lifestyle that will benefit your health.

In the UK over half of adults and a third of all children are now classed as being over weight or obese. Being overweight is associated with many health problems such as -

  • type 2 diabetes
  • coronary heart disease and stroke
  • metabolic syndrome
  • certain types of cancer
  • sleep apnea
  • osteoarthritis
  • gallbladder disease
  • fatty liver disease
  • pregnancy complications

There is no single way to lose weight that works for everyone. However, research has shown that people who make permanent changes to their eating habits and increase their physical activity are more successful at losing weight and maintaining it than people who use a 'quick fix' solution.

Our healthcare assistant can help you with 1-1 weight management programme and advice on healthy eating or if you prefer we can refer you to the Slimming on Referral program being run through Slimming World.

On Friday mornings between 09:00 and 10:00 our healthcare assistant holds a weekly weigh-in meeting for patients wishing to monitor their weight, meet likeminded people over a coffee/tea and share healthy eating ideas and tips. No appointment is needed just turn up and let reception know you wish to join the weigh-in
