Weight Management Team

The weight management team are specialist dietitians who work to empower you to make changes towards diet and lifestyle. We work closely with the food worker team and in collaboration with other agencies , providing you with the practical food skills and experience to put advice from your dietitians into practice.

Our clinics are located across the city and we offer advice to people who are housebound and need to lose weight. You will need to be referred by your GP. 

We offer individualised assessment , weight management groups and follow up appointments.

Our 12 week weight management groups are led by a community dietitian and supported by the community food workers and include:

  • Food and nutrition education
  • Healthy cooking practical sessions with the community food workers
  • Food labelling advice
  • Specially calculated portion plans
  • Support and motivation and a weekly weigh in
  • Behaviour change information to enable you to make life long changes that promote weight loss and help maintain those losses.

Group sessions are offered in South, Central and the North of the city including some evenings. You will need to be referred by your GP. We also give healthy eating talks to community groups and patient groups.
