NHS DIGITAL WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PROGRAMME

Obesity is a serious health concern that increases the risk of many other health conditions, including Type 2 Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint problems, mental health problems, and some cancers.

There is also evidence to suggest that people living with obesity are at higher risk of the more severe outcomes associated with COVID-19.

Welcome to the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme. The programme offers free, online access to weight management services for those who have a BMI between 27.5 or greater than 30 and who also have diabetes or high blood pressure, or both.

The NHS Digital Weight Management Programme is an accessible and convenient way to help you develop healthier eating habits, be more active and lose weight. You will only be able to access this programme if you have a smartphone or computer with internet access.

You can find more information about the programme on the NHS website: www.england.nhs.uk/digital-weightmanagement or via your GP surgery who are able to make the onward referral.

Covid Vaccine Roll out

It’s been a busy and hopeful start to 2021 with the roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine. Staff have worked over weekends, adapted their shifts and even adopted the role of marshalls and assisting GPs and Nurses with documenting vaccines given on the national system. Not to mention the careful planning that takes place in the background. We have also vaccinated our care homes and housebound patients in addition to the clinics. Whilst we have made a brilliant start there is much more work to be done. You can help us by:
✅ Making sure we have the correct phone number for yourself or anyone you care for.
✅ Please try not to contact the surgery about the vaccines. We will contact you when it’s time for you to be vaccinated.
✅ Arrive on time if you have an appointment in a vaccine clinic.
✅ Let us know if you can’t attend your appointment. This will allow time to offer it to another patient.
✅ Be aware that you may be asked to go for a vaccination at a site that you do not normally visit.
Here are a few pictures of our team in clinics and vaccinating in the community.
