As part of the new NHS initiative outlined by the government, all GP practices are being asked to gather information on patient’s weight. This is following on from data in 2018/19 revealing 63% of adults in England were considered overweight. Furthermore, the COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted the importance of weight management with those who are overweight living with increased risk of serious illness or disease. With this in mind, we will be contacting all patients in the practice to send us an up to date weight so we can update your records. If your weight falls in the overweight category, we will be contacting you to offer you some appropriate support should you wish to accept this.
