Our medical weight loss practitioners have completed intense training provided by The National Weight Loss Programme. The programme is taught by a Dr Matt Capehorn who has run the largest Obesity Clinic in the United Kingdom for over 12 years. He has also been involved in a very large number of studies on obesity and sits as an advisor on multiple obesity council boards. Having the input of Dr Capehorn provides our clients with an unparalleled support and knowledge base during their weight loss journey. Furthermore, the programme is based on hundreds of years of research and hard facts, endorsed by the National Institute of Clinical Excellence and supported by the Royal College of Nursing, so that we can answer any questions you might have and back them up with the science behind them.

WHAT IS ? Prescription Weight Loss?

Prescription weight loss has been used for many decades but we never really cracked the code on how to do it safely… until now. We are delighted to bring Ozempic’s and Saxenda’s revolutionary prescription weight loss products to our clients. We are sure by now you will have heard about them all over the news, Hollywoods best kept secret now revealed and now available to you. You are invited to attend a consultation where you will meet with a medical weight loss expert who will do a number of tests (measurement of your waist circumference, weight, height, blood glucose and medical history) to determine your suitability for the medication.

How does it Work?

Your body produces two hormones, Ghrelin (the gremlin) which causes hunger and Leptin which makes you feel full. Your medication works on the GLP-1 protein which increase your Leptin making your feel fuller for longer, stimulates your insulin production making your cells absorb sugars giving you more energy and slows your stomach emptying time.

Used to Treat

This prescription weight loss is used to treat people of larger waist circumferences or body mass index’s. Women with a waist circumference greater than 88cm and men with a waist circumference greater than 102cm are at much higher risk of diseases such as Diabetes, Heart Failure, COPD and Cancer. There are over 300 disease’s and 13 different Cancers directly related to obesity. But the good news is you can decrease your risk of dying by up to 50% if you loose 10kg of body fat and we are here to insure your optimal health. Indirectly new research is showing that weight loss medications are also helping fight anxiety and depression, they have even been shown to help with a range of addictions: sugar, food, alcohol etc.

How Long will it Last?

Your Saxenda medication is a daily injection and your Ozempic medication is a weekly injection. We will usually try to prescribe you Ozempic, if you fit the criteria, but because of its unparalleled success there is a world wide shortage of the drug, we however have a fantastic supplier and are proud to say we rarely run out. Sexanda will be out of your system in a day or two where as Ozempic can take some weeks before it is fully out of the body. For your convivence we generally provide a months supply of medication. Weight regain and length of time taking the drug will be further explained at consultation and in your information pack you will receive at your consultation.

What’s in the Information pack?

You will receive your information pack when you are deemed suitable for treatment and are given your medication. The pack includes a guide to how fat affects the body and how to recognise your risk of disease and reduce that risk, how weight is affected by sleep patterns, diet , recommended diets, understanding calories, intermittent fasting information, exercise, information on putting weight back on and how to avoid this, a guide to how your medication works and lots of tips throughout.

Manufactures Information


The main benefits may include:

1.Saxenda (Liraglutide) is 97% similar to natural human GLP-1 and therefore acts as a physiological regulator of appetite and thereby reducing food intake by reducing feelings of hunger and increasing feelings of fullness/satiety. The exact underlying mechanism of action is not entirely clear.

2.Saxenda(Liraglutide 3mg injection)is a newly licensed medication indicated for reduction in appetite as an adjunct to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity for weight management of patients with an increased Body Mass Index (BMI).

3.For long term success the treatment needs to be combined with lifestyle changes including nutritional, excercise and behavioural habits. Access to support modules are given through the Weight Journey online service.

4.Weight loss can lead to secondary benefits by improving weight loss related health problems such as cardiovascular risk factors (including hypertension, blood glucose levels and waist circumference) and physical health-related Quality of Life.

You should understand that:

1.Alternatives to Saxenda therapy are surgical procedures, oral medical treatments (including Orlistat)and / or dietary and lifestyle changes alone.

2.Several weeks to months of treatment may be required depending on your individual response.

3.If a missed dose is more than 12 hours late, the missed dose should not be taken and the next dose should be taken at the normal time.

4.It is essential to combine eating, exercise and behavioral modifications with Saxenda.

5.Saxenda should not be used in combination with another GLP-1 receptor agonist, insulin or insulin secretagogues (such as sulfonylureas)due to the risk of hypoglycaemia.

6.Upon initiation of liraglutide treatment in patients on warfarin or other coumarin derivatives more frequent monitoring of International Normalised Ratio (INR) is recommended.

7.Saxenda® causes a delay of gastric emptying, and has the potential to impact the absorption of concomitantly administered oral medications. Monitor for potential consequences of delayed absorption of oral medications concomitantly administered with Saxenda®

8.There are several special warnings and precautions for use of Saxenda including warnings on pancreatitis, cholelithiasis and cholecystitis, thyroid disease, heart rate, dehydration and hypoglycaemia in people with type 2 diabetes.

9.Thyroid adverse events, such as goitre have been reported in particular in patients with pre-existing thyroid disease. Saxenda should therefore be used with caution in patients with thyroid disease.

10.A higher rate of cholelithiasis and cholecystitis(gallstone and gallbladder disease)has been observed in patients treated with liraglutide. Cholelithiasis and cholecystitis may lead to hospitalisation and cholecystectomy(surgery to remove the gallbladder). Patients should be aware of the characteristic symptoms of cholelithiasis and cholecystitis.

11.Signs and symptoms of dehydration, including renal impairment and acute renal failure, have been reported in patients treated with Liraglutide. Patients treated with liraglutide should be advised of the potential risk of dehydration in relation to gastrointestinal side effects and take precautions to avoid fluid depletion. Patients should also be aware of the symptoms of increased heart rate.

12.Acute pancreatitis has been observed with the use of Liraglutide. Patients and their carers should be told how to recognise signs and symptoms of acute pancreatitis and advised to seek immediate medical attention if symptoms develop. If pancreatitis is suspected, liraglutide should be discontinued; if acute pancreatitis is confirmed, liraglutide should not be restarted.

13.Liraglutide may cause dose-dependent and treatment-duration-dependent thyroid C-cell tumors at clinically relevant exposures in both genders of rats and mice. It is unknown whether Saxenda® causes thyroid C-cell tumors, including medullary thyroid carcinoma(cancer, MTC), in humans, as the human relevance of liraglutide-induced rodent thyroid C-cell tumors has not been determined. Patients should be aware of symptoms of thyroid tumours(such as a mass in the neck, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing or shortness of breath, persistent hoarseness).
