Weight Loss Package
Many of us have become de-conditioned in the last year, experiencing social isolation and living through a momentous period in our world’s history – the COVID-19 pandemic. This has had negative effects on both our physical and mental health.
Negative impacts have included weight gain, muscle loss, de-conditioning and a deterioration in fitness.
Over the short- to medium-term, this puts stress on the physiological and biochemical processes in our body. Long-term, it can result in disease and illness including diabetes, high blood pressure, depression and anxiety.
Traditional thought implicated 50% of the risk of developing these conditions to genetics. Now we know the truth – genetics only accounts for approximately 10% of the risk, with our modern-day lifestyle responsible for the rest.

Prescription Medication for Weight Loss
If required, we can prescribe weight loss medications. These will be prescribed after we assess your suitability for taking medication. We will discuss the benefits, any possible side effects, and answer any questions you may have.
During treatment with any weight loss medication, we will monitor your response to it.
Our GP’s can prescribe the following two drugs if they are suitable for you
Orlistat is a weight loss medication that works by reducing the amount of fat absorbed in your gut.
It works by inhibiting an enzyme called lipase found in the digestive tract. Lipase normally breaks down dietary fat into smaller components so that it can be absorbed through the gut wall into the blood stream, if the dietary fat is not broken down, it is less likely to be absorbed and is passed with stool.
Orlistat works best when combined with an increase in physical activity and a healthy diet plan.
How do you take it?
It is a tablet which you swallow with some water at the same time as a meal containing fat.
We can offer a prescription of the revolutionary weight loss drug Saxenda (liraglutide).
In clinical trials, individuals who took Saxenda were shown to have persistent weight loss when combined with increased physical activity and a diet plan. It has also been shown to reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure.
Saxenda was originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes. It works similarly to one of the body’s gut hormones GLP-1 to regulate your appetite, slowing down the speed at which your stomach empties. This makes you feel fuller for longer and satisfied with smaller meals, helping you to eat less and lose weight.
It has noticeable effects from as soon as two weeks after starting treatment. Since it was introduced, over a million people around the world have used it to treat obesity.
How do you take it?
Saxenda is administered daily as an injection using a simple pen device. We will teach you how to use the pen device and ensure you are confident with its use. The dose is gradually adjusted to minimise side effects.
