Medical weight loss involves weight loss support from a prescribing nurse in either tablet or injection form. The choice of medication will be decided after consultation and careful screening to ensure they are appropriate and safe for you.
The medication works by mimicking the action of your body’s natural hormones which regulates appetite and food intake. This hormone makes you feel full so your appetite is reduced. It also delays the time it takes to your stomach to empty, which keeps you feeling fuller for longer.
Before we recommend any treatment to new patients, we always offer a comprehensive consultation so you get the best possible results.

The weight-loss treatment is not suitable for any individual with a history of thyroid cancer or pancreatitis, as well as anybody with a BMI less than 28, any patients taking insulin, kidney impairment, pregnant or breast-feeding women, or anybody under the age of 18.
The injection offers an effective, safe and healthy weight-loss solution. It is both FDA and NHS approved. Combined with a healthy diet plan and regular exercise, the injection not only helps you lose weight, but also curbs hunger and cravings, helping you keep the weight off.
The injection is the only approved injectable prescription medicine available in the UK for weight loss.
Most people can expect to lose approximately 1 stone (12 pounds) every 4-6 weeks. Everyone is different and will respond to treatment in different ways. It is important to know that the treatment requires commitment from you to alter your diet and lifestyle to get the best results.
