NHS Digital Weight Management Programme
NHS service offered to patients to help manage weight
About this programme:
The programme offers free, online access to weight management services for those who have a BMI greater than 30 and who also have diabetes or high blood pressure, or both.
The BMI threshold will be lower at 27.5 for people from Black, Asian and ethnic minority backgrounds, as we know people from these ethnic backgrounds are at an increased risk of conditions such as Type 2 diabetes at a lower BMI.
All patients meeting the referral criteria can be referred to this service. To get more information for referral please book a telephone consultation to speak to our practice nurse Jo.
