Posted by: Loodin - Posted on:

Obesity is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, musculoskeletal disorders and some cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon).

HEMC are happy to support patients (age 16+) who wish to lose weight, and work with Hampshire Public Health to provide different levels of support.

The weight management process can be found here

You are able to self-refer for support, Visit Home – Gloji Hampshire

If you wish to access support from the practice to support with your weight loss, please use the eConsult admin pathway including information about your current height, weight, what you have already tried in terms of weight loss, and how long you have been trying to lose weight.

There has been information in the press regarding the approval by NICE of Semaglutide. This is currently only available via Tier 3 / Tier 4 Specialist Services and the practice isn’t able to prescribe this. Medication to support weight loss can be discussed as appropriate by these services if you are on this pathway / Tier.
