GP referral programmes

Information about losing weight through the specialist weight management service programme and GP exercise referral programme.

Specialist Weight Management Service (SWMS)

Do you want to lose weight?

Are you registered with a GP in Kensington and Chelsea and worried about your health?

The specialist weight management service team works together to help people plan, develop and reach their weight loss goals. They use a combination of group and individual therapy to help people lose weight weight and to maintain their weight loss.

The specialist weight management service programme lasts for up to two years. There is frequent contact at the start of the programme and less frequent contact as someone progresses through their individual programme.

The level of input from each team member is tailored to meet individual needs.

To find out more about this NHS programme please visit the specialist weight management webpage.

GP Exercise Referral Programme

If you want to improve your fitness but are concerned about your health, speak to your GP or health professional to see if you would be eligible to join the Exercise Referral Programme.

This programme offers referred patients a subsidised use of facilities, and great tips and advice on how to include physical activity into your life to help improve your health and fitness.

For more information contact your GP.
