Weight Management

What is the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme?

The NHS Digital Weight Management Programme supports adults living with obesity who also have a diagnosis of diabetes, hypertension (high blood pressure) or both, to manage their weight and improve their health.

It's a completely free 12-week online behavioural and lifestyle programme that people can access via a smartphone or computer with internet access.

Who can access the programme?

  • You must be 18 or over

  • Have a BMI greater than 30. The BMI threshold will be lowered to 27.5 for people from Black, Asian, and ethnic minority backgrounds, as we know people from these ethnic backgrounds are at an increased risk of conditions such as Type 2 diabetes at a lower BMI.

  • You must also have diabetes, high blood pressure, or both.

  • The programme is only available to people with a smartphone, tablet, or computer with internet access.

How to sign up

To sign up to the programme you will need to speak to the Health & Wellbeing Team who can refer you to the programme.

If you do not have diabetes or high blood pressure, other weight management services will be offered that may be more appropriate if the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme is not suitable.

Why is this programme important?

Obesity is a serious health concern which increases the risk of many other health conditions. For example, Type 2 Diabetes, cardiovascular disease, joint problems, mental health problems, and some cancers. There is also evidence to suggest that people living with obesity are at higher risk of more severe outcomes associated with COVID-19.

The programme offers three different levels of support, including human coaching for people who may be less likely to complete behavioural and lifestyle change programmes, with the aim of reducing health inequalities.
