Why choose Spire Weight Loss Surgery?


Spire Weight Loss Surgery is a group of hospitals in the North West of the UK that have teams specialising in weight loss surgery.  Whichever hospital you attend you can be assured that you’ll be looked after by a specialist bariatric consultant, and all our consultants are on the specialist register of the UK’s General Medical Council (GMC) and have local NHS practices.  Each hospital also has specialist bariatric nurses, as well as a dietitian who will support you throughout your weight loss journey.  With Spire Weight Loss Surgery we’re with you all the way, from your first appointment until long after the surgery.

Between our five hospitals we have carried out over 4,000 operations so we're experienced in bariatric surgery, plus our hospital in Manchester is recognised as a Centre of Excellence for bariatric surgery.

Fixed price packages
We offer fixed price packages for all of our procedures which covers your two year follow up care, any band fill adjustments (gastric band patients only) and high dependency unit care (HDU) should you require it.

Aftercare package
Our two-year follow up aftercare package includes regular face-to-face, email and telephone conversations with our bariatric team. You will also become a life-long member of our bariatric peer support groups based in Manchester and Macclesfield, giving you the opportunity to meet and socialise with people who have undergone the same life changing surgery.

A range of weight loss surgery procedures
We are able to provide every type of weight loss surgery currently available in the UK, and we offer full support to our surgeons for training, development and research to enhance our services.

Internationally accredited Centre of Excellence
Spire Manchester Hospital became the first fully accredited bariatric centre of excellence in the UK in 2011 by the International Federation of Surgery for Obesity (IFSO).  IFSO is a worldwide organisation that sets standards of bariatric care and monitors progress across the world. We are part of the European Chapter of this organisation and are currently one of only two such hospitals in the UK.

As part of such a prestigious organisation all of our practices are monitored to ensure the high standards expected are maintained at all times. This includes the surgeons who carry out the procedures and the Hospital environment itself.

As a team all patients in our care are asked for consent to include their data (anonymously) in the scientific database IFSO have developed. This data is then used to ensure the exceptional standards delivered at Spire Manchester Hospital are maintained.

The environment has been thoroughly inspected by a representative of IFSO to ensure that patient safety, confidentiality, dignity and respect is ensured. 

As a regional service the standards developed at Spire Manchester Hospital have been shared across the region with the aim of all five sites becoming accredited. The extended team work closely together to provide a level of care and support across the region; necessary for you to achieve the health improvement and weight reduction you aim for.

We are proud of the achievements of our patients and their families and are motivated to continue to provide one of the best bariatric services in the country.
