Dietetics - Weight Management Service

 About the Service

The Specialist Weight Management Service is a hospital-based Tier 3 service. The dietitians are specially trained to address lifestyle change whilst considering the health problems associated with obesity.

The weight management team are here to provide help and support to people who are trying to reduce their weight. We offer you personally tailored 12 months of support to help you to develop your skills and confidence so that you can manage your weight in the longer term. These skills will benefit you regardless of whether you choose to have bariatric surgery or not.

Within the programme, we offer one-to-one and group appointments with dietitians. Group sessions are fortnightly for 6 sessions, followed by 2 monthly sessions. If you are not able to attend a group you will be seen monthly by a dietitian.

We ensure appropriate patients fully meet the criteria set out by the local service commissioners before referral, and that they are fully informed about what surgery involves through an education session.

When you have successfully completed the Tier 3 program you will either be referred back to the care of your local healthcare provider for continued support, or considered for weight loss surgery with our team of specialist surgeon.

Testimonials

Testimonials

My weight loss has been an extraordinary part of my life since the procedure and I am convinced this will massively reduced my chances of getting diabetes and the associated risks plus many other serious longer term issues associated with Obesity. I have no hesitation in stating that this procedure will ultimately extend my life expectancy. The WRH staff are in my opinion outstanding from ****** and his team. I hope my gratitude to all concerned is covered. I am realistic that I still need to focus on my diet for the rest of my life and the surgery is a tool to help me do this along with support from the Trust. Next stop 100kg!!”

“Thank you all for the journey you have helped me embark and for being by my side as I continue on it’s path.
