General Practitioner Consultations
Weight management is a difficult area for most of us and our general practitioners have wide experience and great success in helping people who struggle with overeating, under-exercising and addressing healthier lifestyle choices. If you would benefit from seeing a dietitian our doctors will refer you, or you can self-refer.
Our general practitioners will discuss the ‘syntax’ of weight loss and help you to understand for yourself how diets work and why they usually don’t work forever. You will be supported to find what is going to work best for yourself and your lifestyle.
They will guide you through the physical and physiological aspects of weight management.
We provide as much ongoing support as you would like – from a single 15-minute discussion to referrals to our resident dietitian to properly explore the issues.
Medications can sometimes help and these can be dispensed if appropriate.
Referrals can be arranged for those who prefer surgical or specialist intervention.
