Weight Management

We can help you if you are struggling to lose weight.

You should make an appointment to see the practice nurse – a double appointment for your first visit. We will talk about your health, what you normally eat and how much exercise you do. Then we will recommend what sorts of food to eat and when. If you wish we will also recommend a healthy target weight for you to aim for. We will then weigh you once every 2 weeks. A record of your weight is kept.

In addition, we can refer you to the local leisure centres for exercise programmes and to weight loss courses.

A variety of diet information sheets are available on request from the practice nurses, including diabetic diet, low fat diet and low cholesterol diet sheets.
