Adult weight management

Tipping the Balance  - Adult weight management programme.

Tipping the Balance is our community based clinic helping people lead a healthier lifestyle.

The main aims of the service are to:

  • help people work towards a healthy weight
  • encourage healthy eating and physical activity
  • boost self esteem and confidence.

Any adult with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 35 without conditions such as diabetes, previous stroke or ischaemic heart disease, can be referred to the service by their GP.

Tipping the Balance members have a series of appointments with a Specialist Health Improvement Practitioner (SHIP). The SHIP will advise and guide individuals through lifestyle changes that will help them achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Members will also have access to supermarket walks, group support sessions and walking groups.

To be referred to the programme please speak to your GP or Practice Nurse.
