We have a Dietitian in the practice who you can self-refer to for an individual appointment, without seeing your GP first.
The dietitian can help you to improve your health and wellbeing, as well as support you to maintain the weight you lose. By losing weight you can improve your health, emotional well-being and decrease the risk of diabetes and heart disease.
Do you like the sound of developing skills in menu planning, calorie counting and ways to overcome emotional links with food? Losing weight is different for each individual but you don’t have to go it alone.
When the time is right for you, this service is here to help you make manageable lifelong changes in a way which is most suitable for you.
Appointments will be held at your GP Practice and your Body Mass Index (BMI) must be above 30kg/m2 (a measure of excess weight). Ask your receptionist to book an appointment and start your weight loss journey today!
