Our clinically led Weight Management Programme
It is likely you have tried many ‘diets’ over the years, promising huge weight loss in
seemingly impossibly short time periods. Yes, they work – but if you are reading this, you know better than anyone that they are almost always temporary quick fixes – that is why we have developed our clinically led weight loss programme to help you lose and maintain a healthier weight over a longer period of time.
Our weight management programme has been created by our expert clinical team, which allow you to still enjoy a full range of foods while losing weight and keeping if off. We have developed three core elements to our weight management programme to help you succeed with your weight loss goals.
Our specialist dieticians and nurses will support you every step of your journey, helping you to develop healthier habits and providing the best nutritious advice for you to achieve your goal.
Your dedicated clinical team will be in regular contact with you, throughout the programme and you will receive an appointment with a specialist dietitian every 3-4 weeks, either face-to-face or remotely.
Weight loss medication
Saxenda® is a daily self-administered medication that is similar to a natural hormone that is released in the body after eating. It triggers areas in your brain that control appetite, making you feel more satisfied and less hungry. The result? You can eat less without constant feelings of hunger! In most cases, this can lead to gradual, but more importantly, sustainable weight loss.
EXi is an evidence-based, NHS approved and award-winning app which analyses your health and fitness and prescribes a personalised physical activity programme. Set at exactly the right intensity for you, the app will help you to safely and gently increase your activity levels and improve your health.
