It's a referral only service, which means you'll need to speak to your GP in the first instance to see if you're eligible.
It may be suitable for you if you're:
- Very overweight, with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 30
- Have other health problems, such as a heart condition, diabetes or you're waiting for surgery
- Motivated to lose weight.
If you're not sure what your BMI is, you can check it on the NHS Choices website, or ask your GP.
Speak to your GP about accessing this service
In order to use the slimming on referral service, you must speak to your GP first. Your GP can then advise you whether the scheme is right for you.
Please be aware, you won't be able to refer yourself to the service - it has to come through your GP surgery.
