New NHS Digital Weight Management Service.

The programme offers free, online access to weight management services for those who have a BMI greater than 30 and who also have diabetes or high blood pressure, or both. The BMI threshold will be lower at 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.  

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

Local Authority’s may offer weight management services that may be more appropriate if the NHS Digital Weight Management Programme is not suitable.
