Weight loss support now available in high street pharmacies

Goodbody Health

NHS England has announced that local high street pharmacy will as part of the NHS’s radical action to tackle rising obesity levels and type 2 diabetes offer help to those struggling to lose weight.

Pharmacy teams can now refer adults living with obesity, and other conditions, to a twelve-week online NHS weight management programme which they can start within 10 days of visiting their local pharmacy.

Three in five adults in England are overweight, with more than one in four living with obesity.

Marc Howells CEO at Goodbody Health said:

“The NHS are working with the local high street pharmacy to help the local community in managing their lifestyle. This new initiative is key in tackling the rising levels of obesity and type 2 diabetes. Cholesterol levels and Pre diabetes HbA1 indicators are major factors in understanding these levels and can easily be identified through blood testing. At Goodbody Health we welcome using the resources of the qualified pharmacists to take the pressure from the overloaded NHS.”
