We accept referrals if patients meet the NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellent) 2006 guidelines.
We require a referral letter from a medical practitioner, which should be addressed to a Consultant, before an appointment can be made. Please ensure that the patientís weight, height and BMI are stated clearly in the letter. Past medical and dieting history should also be included. Failure to include these details will result in a rejection of the referral.
All of the following criteria need to be fulfilled:
Body Mass Index (BMI)
The Body Mass Index is a tool that can be used to tell how healthy a person's weight is.
To work out your BMI, you need to take your weight in kilograms (kg) and divide it by your height in metres (m). Then divide the result by your height in metres (m) again.
For example, if you weigh 70kg, and you're 1.75m tall, your BMI would be 22.9 (70/1.75 = 40 and 40/1.75 = 22.9).
