The Sheffield Weigh Ahead service takes a multi-disciplinary team approach in which the patient and their specific needs are paramount. The service is targeted at patients who have previously tried commercial slimming organisations and have not found them helpful, or who feel that they have tried everything with no long-lasting results.
During the sessions provided by the service, we work to improve every aspect of the patients’ quality of life- not just focussing on weight loss. Making changes to help you lose weight takes time so it is important that anyone who takes part in the Weigh Ahead programme is able to commit to it.
If you feel ready and able to spare time and effort each week to organising and planning your food and physical activity, then you could benefit from taking part in the Weigh Ahead programme.
Weigh Ahead is available to people who are registered with a Sheffield GP and have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 40 or over, or, 35 or over, but have another health condition such as diabetes or hypertension.
