How do medical weight loss programmes work?

Our medical weight loss programmes at The Slimming Clinic aim to make your weight loss journey as unique as you are.

From your first consultation call, you will talk with a GMC-registered doctor, who will discuss you and your lifestyle, to determine the best weight loss programme for you.
Based around your goals, the doctor will recommend the programme they think will ensure you reach the aims you came to us to achieve.
This could be through prescribed appetite suppressants, natural slimming supplements, nutrition and exercise coaches and regular appointments with our team of weight loss coaches. Your weight loss journey with us couldn’t be simpler and we are here to support you every step of the way. Most importantly, our medical weight loss programmes are completely safe with proven long-term success.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss involves weight loss support from a professional, qualified doctor or prescribing nurse with the option of prescription weight loss medication in either tablet or injection form.
This medication should be taken alongside a healthy, balanced diet and exercise for an effective, long-term weight loss solution.

Are weight loss injections and medication safe, and do they work?

Weight loss injections and medication at The Slimming Clinic are completely safe, all clinically trialled and expertly prescribed by our qualified doctors. Our prescription weight loss medication and injections are designed to work effectively alongside a sustainable diet plan and regular activity.
Some medications suppress or reduce your appetite (not completely take it away), whereas others can limit the amount of fat absorbed by the body. Our doctors will only prescribe weight loss medication that works best alongside your existing medical history and lifestyle. Read more about our prescription weight loss medication.
