Everyone who is referred and accepted in to the Specialist Weight Management service will be asked to attend an introduction session. The purpose of this session is to provide patients with an overview of the service and at the same time explains what is expected from patients who engage with the service, including a patient’s commitment and responsibility. Please allow up to 90 minutes for this session.
Following the session you will be asked if you wish to ‘opt in’ to the service or ‘opt out’ of the service. If you ‘opt in’ to the service you will then receive an appointment to attend an initial assessment. If you decide to ‘opt out’ of the service, your referral will be closed.
