If you are concerned about your weight please book an appointment with a doctor, a nurse or our health trainer to see how we can help you.
The causes and solutions for weight gain can be complex and there is a considerable amount of dodgy information and even dodgier medications that we would recommend you to avoid.
As well as excluding medical causes, and supporting you, there are free local services that we can refer you to, if appropriate, to help you to identify the right pathway for you.
We have a free NHS health trainer based in our practice, ask reception to book you an appointment.
