Your doctor's surgery

What's on offer in terms of weight management support will vary - speak to your doctor or practice nurse about what's on offer. This may include:

  • A practice nurse who will help with lifestyle change and offer regular support
  • A local weight management group, either within the practice run by health professionals, or other local groups
  • A dietitian, who can offer more individualised, specialist advice and support with managing your weight
  • An exercise prescription scheme at a local leisure centre in addition to dietary support

If you're currently not registered with a practice and want to find where your nearest one is, look on the NHS Direct website.
