I recently went to my Gp as I thought I would get help to start the weight loss programme. Slimming class, exercise class etc. You now have to have blood tests before you can referred. This has taken a month along with the difficulty of finding a scale that will weigh me. My Gp practice scale only goes up to 21 stone . Asda and boots do not have a scale any more and the only one I found weighed me incorrectly.. Any suggestions? I have joined a Sw class as this was the only way I could keep up my motivation, when I received the call from the Nhs telling me 4-6 months waiting list. With all the research into obesity and mental health I would have thought that an initial visit to get you started would be imperative.
Has anyone else found these difficulties ?
Rant over ....
