Medicated Weight Loss Service
Take a step towards achieving your weight loss goals with our new weight loss service

Medicated Weight Management Service

This service is offered in partnership with CML Pharmacy Services.

Having undertaken extensive training in this area, we are pleased to be able to offer this medicated weight loss service, with MHRA/EMA approved medications not currently available on the NHS in Scotland.

  Why should I lose weight?

There are many reasons to lose weight and everyone’s motivations will be different.

Obesity (Body Mass Index (BMI)>30) is associated with numerous health conditions including:

  • Obstructive Sleep Apnoea
  • Dyslipidaemia (Abnormal levels of fat/cholesterol in the blood)
  • Cardiovascular disease e.g. high blood pressure, coronary artery disease and stroke amongst others
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Various types of cancer
  • Osteoarthritis

By losing weight, even just 3% of your body weight, you risk of the above conditions may be lowered.*

  Why should I use a medicated weight-loss service?

It is now recognised that obesity is a disease and that controlling the disease is more complex than simply losing weight. In the first instance, we encourage patients to modify their diet and exercise rather than resorting to medical intervention. However, should this not prove effective, some people may benefit from medical assistance.

  How does the service work?

If you are interested in accessing this service, we invite you to complete the following questionnaire so we can assess your suitability for this service:

https://forms.gle/MqiFsmdKkFLzwPFY7

If requested, you will then be contacted and we can arrange an initial appointment, either in person at a time and place to suit you (depending on Covid-19 restrictions). At this first appointment, we can take measurements which help give an overall picture of health and can help us track your progress through your weight loss journey.

If you are commenced on treatment, we can arrange regular follow-ups at a time and at a frequency to suit your needs. Please note that our interventions must be used alongside diet and exercise measures

  What medication do you offer?

Following an initial consultation, our pharmacists will decide if treatment is appropriate.

If medical treatment is deemed appropriate, we are able to offer Saxenda® to eligible patients.

Saxenda® is licenced to be used alongside a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity in patients with a BMI over 30 or a BMI between 27 and 30 with a weight related health condition. **
