BEING OVERWEIGHT — DON’T LET IT BE A BURDEN

Being overweight 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.

After you start any treatment we prescribe, we’ll check in with you 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’ll also send you an exclusive offer from WeightWatchers— from only £7/month for your first 6-months. Lifestyle changes lay the foundation for all healthy weight loss—even when you’re taking weight-management medication. Their clinically proven programme helps you build healthy habits for lasting weight loss and well-being. *Please see our Terms and Conditions
