Medway Overweight and Obesity Care Pathway

In order to ensure that appropriate advice is offered by health professionals to overweight and obese clients, a multi-organisational and professional steering group were established in 2013, to design a treatment care pathway. Clients access this pathway when they either raise the issue of their weight with a professional, or their weight status is recorded within a routine appointment and the professional raises the issue with them. The pathway is only appropriate if the individual has a weight loss or maintenance goal, as it is highly unlikely that they will be successful in any weight reduction or maintenance, if they are not motivated to do so.

Hard copies of the pathway were distributed to a wide range of health professionals when originally printed, however it is recognised that details within the Adult and Children Service Pyramids (pages 6 and 9) are subject to change, as local services are added or stopped. The following link will provide an up to date version of the pathway document, where any changes to the services listed, will be made as soon as they are confirmed.
