Weight Management Clinics
Individual one-to-one sessions with our friendly nutritionists and dietitians. Our free clinics offer you support and tailored guidance combining nutrition and behaviour change to help you eat a balanced diet, take control of your portions and develop healthier habits.
Over two thirds of those who completed the clinic programme last year lost weight and 85% achieved all of their nutrition goals.
What to expect
Your first appointment will last up to 60 minutes, providing time to discuss your goals and how we can best support you. Follow up appointments are usually every four weeks (you will be offered 6 appointments in total), with each follow up appointment generally lasting for 30 minutes.
We provide you with up-to-date, evidence-based information on healthy eating and support you to manage your weight. Together we explore the factors contributing to your weight concerns and help you set realistic goals and make dietary changes that are easy to maintain.
Our help and support doesn't end when you have finished your programme. We have a number of options to suit, ranging from our weekly drop in support group to volunteering options and Shape Up in the Kitchen cookery course.

It’s given me a better insight into diet, weight loss, portion sizes and meal timings - it’s been a real eye opener. I’m eating much more regularly now. Being a local service was an advantage.

We found our sessions with you very encouraging and helpful. It was especially helpful to us to have the portion sizes explained clearly.
