An Introduction to the Weight Management DES

NHS England and NHS Improvement have launched a weight management enhanced service to encourage primary care to support patients living with obesity. Due to the impact of the Covid 19 the numbers of people identified by general practice as living with obesity have fallen during the pandemic. All practices in NCL have signed up to the weight management service and NCL are hosting a webinar for all general practice that will:

  • provide an overview of the weight management and DES, 
  • outline the EMIS infrastructure and discuss the payment process
  • summarise NCL and borough weight management services (Tier 2 services)
  • outline the proposed pathways and service mapping
