Weight management centre

Helping people who are dealing with excess weight.

Overview

Weight loss works differently for each person and can be achieved through a number of different methods, including dietary and lifestyle changes, appropriate medication and bariatric (weight-loss) surgery.

Through the weight management team, you will have access to a wide variety of therapies and support services, all under one roof.

What does weight management involve?

We offer a full physical and mental health assessment to explore not only your weight but other issues which may be related.

The team will explore with you, the best options to reduce excess weight, maintain a healthy body mass index (BMI) and to support your level of morale.

You will be supported by the team throughout the programme. In addition to their individual areas of expertise, they have access to additional services including:

  • a personal trainer
  • a dietician
  • complementary therapies including massage or acupuncture
  • pulmonary rehabilitation for those who are experiencing breathlessness.
