Would weight loss change your life?

COVID-19 Service Update

Currently we are offering no face to face appointments, education sessions or support group meetings.

All of our appointments will be made virtually using Attend Anywhere or over the phone.

We are concentrating on making our educational material available online, once that is done we hope to be able to recommence groups virtually.

Thank you for your patience.

After each Education Session we ask for feedback so that we can improve each session and tailor the session to our patients. Here is a selection of the feedback we have recieved:

“This will be my last visit to the specialist weight management education sessions and they have really helped me lose nearly 5 stone in the last 6 months. I would like to thank Claire and Elaine for all their dedication and good work with all the sessions I have attended.”



“With your and your colleagues help and encouragement I have now lost almost 24kg since 05 January 2015 so exceeding the 5% target weight loss I was set. THANK YOU”
