Weightwise Extra is a specialist service for Children and Young People aged 4 to 17. It helps to improve emotional and physical health and supports weight loss and maintenance.
The service offers care for between 6 and 24 months, depending on what help is needed. It provides an opportunity to the options that are available with a member of the team; these include 1-2-1 appointments with a paediatric dietitian and/or psychological wellbeing practitioners if deemed necessary. There is also access to the fun 24-week Weightwise Extra programme. The programme empowers the children and young people, as well as their parents, to make positive choices around the food and drink they consume and their physical activity levels with both theory and practical elements each week.
Your doctor or School Nurse can help you access the service by referring you. If you have any queries or questions about Weightwise Extra, please call 01482 247111.
