You can read more about the free NHS Digital Weight Management Programme in our leaflet.
What’s the criteria to be referred to the programme?
- You must be 18 or over
- Have a BMI greater than 30. The BMI threshold will be lowered to 27.5 for people from Black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds, as we know people from these ethnic backgrounds are at an increased risk of conditions such as Type 2 diabetes at a lower BMI.
- You must also have diabetes, high blood pressure, or both.
- The programme is only available to people with a smartphone, tablet, or computer with internet access.
Speak to your GP Practice or visit your local pharmacy today to find out how the programme could benefit you. If you do not have diabetes or high blood pressure, you may still benefit from the NHS Better Health programme.
