Medical consultation for people with excess weight
Being over weight is a very common problem. More than 2/3 adults in the UK are either overweight or obese. Excess weight is linked to several serious health problems such as heart disease, diabetes and stroke.
We can prescribe medicine to help you to lose the extra weight — providing it’s suitable for you. We’ll get in touch with advice on how to best take your medicine and help you make the lifestyle changes you need to manage your weight over the long-term.
We’ll check in with you after you start any treatment we prescribe to see how you’re getting on. If it’s going well, you can potentially request repeat prescriptions for up to 12 months and we’ll check in regularly with you to see if you are on track.
We can offer you one to one support in our discreet consultation room and will offer a number of remedies to help you. We can prescribe certain medications or offer you a weight loss diet if you prefer. Wegovy or Saxenda injections may be an option.
