Weight Management Clinic
Lifestyle Weight Management Clinic
The Weight Loss Clinic is for people with obesity who want to lose weight by making dietary and lifestyle changes.
Being overweight is associated with many health problems. In the UK over half of adults are overweight.
There is no single way to lose weight that works for everyone. However, research has shown that people who make permanent changes to their eating habits and increase their physical activity are more successful at losing weight and maintaining it than people who use a 'quick fix' solution.
The emphasis is on making dietary and behavioural changes which can be maintained in the long-term.
