Weight management

District and borough council programmes support overweight and obese adults to lose weight and sustain their weight loss. The free programmes are tailored to the needs of participants and are delivered in a supportive environment, once per week, over a 12-week period.

Residents can be referred to the programme through a GP or primary care nurse, with the addition of a self-referral option in some districts. The programme offers information and advice on nutrition and includes a physical activity element, with a strong focus on behaviour change towards improving the lifestyle of the participant.
