Dietitian led weight loss management

Spire Manchester Hospital has developed a service led by our dietitian to help people manage their weight loss goals.

Spire Manchester Hospital offers individual weight management programmes where patients can attend a 1:1 consultation with Jennie Taylor. Jennie is our specialist dietitian and having worked as part of our bariatric team is highly experienced in weight management and can offer very useful advice and assistance with weight loss.

The service includes:
  • Weight check
  • An initial 1:1 hour consultation with dietitian identifying your current concerns and weight loss
  • Identifying areas for change
  • Includes individual prescribed meal plans
  • Behavioural change
  • Energy and protein prescriptions
  • Food diary analysis

Follow up appointments to monitor progress and weight loss are available

Medical management for weight loss
Spire Manchester Hospital is also able to offer medical management for weight loss. Many people seek help with weight loss but have difficulty accessing professionals who can offer sufficient help and support to allow optimal success, that is maintained in the long term. Spire Manchester Hospital offers a six month weight management program that includes both dietician, specialist nurse and medical support.

For some individuals dietary support and medication can help to maintain a healthy weight and improve quality of life. Treatments such as Orlistat (Xenical) which reduces the absorption of fat from your diet can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet, lifestyle changes and exercise.

Individuals with a BMI greater than 27kg/m² - 28.0 kg/m² with associated risk factors or a BMI of greater than 30 kg/m² may benefit from this type of treatment. Close monitoring is required at the hospital on a two weekly basis during prescription of these drugs to ensure that there are no medical complications associated with the drugs and you are supported throughout this treatment.

07.07.2016 - Mr Chris Peach talks us through preventing upper limb tennis injuries. As we look forward to the Wimbledon final, the lucky few who will travel down to SW19 can dream of sunshine, strawberries and cream and enjoyable tennis, whilst the rest of the club tennis players are staying at home. For those who are continuing to play this summer, it may not be at the forefront of your minds to consider the frequency and burden of injury to the upper limb in what is a non-contact and leisurely pastime.
