Our Adult Weight Management (AWM) 12 week programmes are underpinned by behaviour change techniques to help adults adopt healthy eating habits and become more physically active to reduce their BMI.
The service is provided by our team, by Weight Watchers, Slimming World and Trim ‘n Train, depending on the wants and needs of each participant.
All of our weight management programmes are free of charge for people who are overweight or obese and available from the age of 16 with no upper age limit.
We provide extra ongoing support for up to 12 months, no matter which service is used, which includes support from a Health Trainer.
Our groups run once a week for 12 weeks and each session lasts for 90 minutes. Each session has 2 parts. The first part focuses on healthy eating and is run by our Nutritionist and the second part is physical activity run by our Physical Activity Specialist – they are fun and friendly and allow patients to weigh in each week and track their progress.
We encourage a balanced approach including both what you eat and helping you to move more, as well as helping you to track your progress – we’ll be there every step of the way, and to cheer on every pound you lose.
