Why we want you to complete this Weight Management Survey

Wirral Council and NHS Wirral Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) are currently reviewing the support on offer to local people (adults aged 16 years and over) who have concerns about being overweight. We would welcome your views to help us plan local support services. 

How we provide Adult Weight Management Services at present

Weight Management services are designed to support people to lose weight and reduce the health complications that arise from being overweight. Currently in Wirral, health care professionals based within GP practices can refer patients to the following weight management services dependent on the support they need:

  • Slimming World
  • Weight Watchers (WW)
  • NHS weight management service (provided by Wirral Community NHS Foundation Trust) 

Do I have to take part?

No. It is up to you to decide whether or not to take part. Please read this information and take your time to decide. You can still use any service just the same whether you decide to take part in the survey or not. 

We take confidentiality very seriously. We won’t ask for your name or address and any responses we receive will be securely stored and will only be used for improving local services. 

What’s involved?

The survey asks for brief information about you and your views on losing weight and the support available. This survey should take about 10 minutes to complete depending on how much information you want to provide.
