Slimming World and Weight Watchers
The Weight Watchers weight loss programmes can be used by GPs to help people lose and control their weight.
The aim of this is to ensure any medical procedures and medications are as effective as they can be, and recovery time is as short as possible. Weight loss also has a dramatic effect on general health and wellbeing.
If you believe you may be overweight and need to lose it for health reasons - especially if you are waiting for an operation or medical procedure - please contact your GP Practice. Alternatively, you can self-refer as long as you meet certain criteria: Click here to view the Weight Watchers flyer. You could be entitled to attend either programme free of charge for 12 weeks.
For Healthcare Professionals:
The tier 2 weight management services are commissioned by HCC Public Health. Hampshire patients are able to use Weight Watchers on referral free of charge for 12 weeks.
