Choosing to manage your weight will result in you feeling healthier and more confident about your body. When you book an appointment, you will be weighed by a qualified doctor. You will also receive advice regarding a balanced diet.
Prior to your first appointment with the doctor, we will first need to establish your BMI ( body mass Index) as you need to have a BMI in excess of 30 (27 with associated comorbidities), not be taking any medication for conditions such as epilepsy or depression, and provide confirmation that you are over the age of 18 (ID required) before any appointment can be offered.
At your first appointment, you will fill out a registration form, a medical record, be weighed and have your blood pressure taken. After this, you will then see our doctor who will assess your suitability for treatment by taking into account your medical history, your height and weight, and your willingness to follow our treatment programme.
Once it is established that you would be medically suitable and that you are completely happy to proceed with the treatment the doctor will advise you of our low fat, low sugar diet programme and will discuss other courses of treatment that can help you manage your weight. You would then come back at regular intervals for your progress to be monitored by the doctor.
Once you have finished a course of treatment, to help maintain your weight, you can come back at regular intervals to be weighed free of charge, and if you feel that your weight is creeping back on you can book in to see the doctor.
We do have a lot of people that return to us periodically if they feel that their weight is starting to “creep back on”.
