We run 2 healthy weight programmes.

1-year programme in south east London (tier 3)

Our south east London weight management programme is an intensive 1-year course.

This is known as a tier 3 weight management programme. It is for people who are severely overweight and registered with a GP in Bexley, Bromley, Lambeth, Lewisham or Southwark.

The programme includes nutrition education and advice about:

  • changing your eating behaviour
  • mindful eating, helping you to be more aware of how you feel when you eat
  • goal setting
  • psychology
  • exercise

There is a choice of 2 group programmes:

  • balance

The balance programme aims for slow, steady weight loss.

The fast programme aims for greater weight loss within the first 3 months. You take in 800 calories a day for 3 months under medical supervision. Healthy eating is reintroduced in months 4 to 6. There are follow-ups for another 6 months.
