If you are having or have had weight loss surgery at Spire Bushey Hospital, you will be invited to attend the monthly weight loss support group without further charge or time limit. If you are thinking about having weight loss surgery and want to find out more about it from other weight loss surgery patients then you are welcome to attend one of the support group sessions free of charge.

Support Group 2017

The weight loss surgery group is held monthly at Spire Bushey Hospital. It provides an opportunity for patients who are having or have had bariatric surgery at the hospital to share experiences, challenges and helpful ideas and tips.

If you are a previous patient of ours, there is no further charge or time limit in attending the support group. If you are thinking about having weight loss surgery and want to find out more about it from other weight loss surgery patients then you are welcome to attend one of the support group sessions free of charge.

Our Specialist Bariatric Dietitian, Gill Cuffaro leads the monthly support group and delivers an educational presentation during every session along the themes of:

  • Exercise
  • Vitamins
  • Balancing your meals
  • Coping with celebrations and special occasions
  • Food and mood

One of our experienced bariatric consultants usually attends the group and is available to answer any questions you may have.

The support group takes place on the first Tuesday of every month between 7-9pm in the restaurant at Spire Bushey Hospital.

Read the comments that some of our current members have said about the support group:

"The support and friendship that is offered by the group has been invaluable and has really contributed to my excellent progress."
– Mrs C, three years post gastric sleeve with eight stone weight loss.

"When I am struggling a bit and think that I am not making much progress the support group gives me reassurance and encouragement and it is great to meet and talk with other patients who are further down the line than me and have reached their ideal weight after gastric band surgery."
– Miss R, seven months post gastric band with two-and-a-half stone weight loss.
