Weight Management Service

We have been made aware by the commissioner that they will not be renewing the service after the 31st March 2024.  Outstanding claims MUST be submitted before 5th April 2024. No further patients should be seen under the service after the end of March 2024.


The Weight Management Service is commissioned by Wakefield City Council.

The service aims to support adults (over 18 years) to lose weight, or to maintain a healthy weight, by helping to keep track of weight and BMI by providing regular weigh-in support.

Pharmacies providing this service will weigh and measure anyone (over 18 years of age) who self-refer to the service.

Brief advice about healthy eating will be provided and individuals will be signposted to specialist services where appropriate.

See the Weight Management Service Specification for more details.
