An estimated 23% of the UK population is now classed as obese putting them at risk of a whole host of related health issues and can also affect your confidence. The UK has the second-highest rate of obesity in Europe and The Department of Health has also recently warned that obesity has overtaken smoking as the leading cause of some cancers. Despite this, the provision of weight loss treatments available on the NHS remains restrictive.
Our Weight Management Service can provide convenient, confidential, and personalised help to those who need it, and can help reduce the risk of a wide range of health problems and it enables you to lead a healthier lifestyle. Upon successful consultation with our trained pharmacist, we will supply Saxenda (an injectable medication), which reduces your appetite and cravings. This drug is also used amongst patients with type 2 diabetes.
