THE NATIONAL MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAMME
Medikate are certified partners of the national medical weight loss programme
The National Medical Weight Loss Programme offers you support, advice and treatment options to help you on your weight loss journey.
Designed as a medically supervised route to lasting weight loss for those who are overweight or obese.
The first step is a full medical consultation with our Nurse Practitioner and Independent Prescriber, where we discuss your overall health and wellbeing as well as your weight. This gives you and our nurse practitioner an opportunity to fully explore the weight management options available to you.
Treatment pathways may include the use of medication alongside diet and exercise plans. Medications may be oral or a simple injection.
Treatments mimic the body’s natural hormone (GLP1) which regulates appetite and food intake. This makes you feel full, thereby curbing your appetite allowing you to break destructive food habits such as emotional eating, evening grazing and reducing your portion size. This medication also delays stomach emptying, ensuring you feel full for longer.
