What’s the purpose of weight loss medication?
Embarking on a journey to shed those extra pounds can be challenging, especially when a healthy diet and exercise alone aren’t achieving the desired results. We understand that managing hunger levels can be a struggle, and that’s where weight loss medications come into play.
Our medications target the appetite centre in the brain, aid in feeling full, and help eliminate excess fat. In the UK, we offer licensed medications such as Saxenda® (Liraglutide), Wegovy® (Semaglutide), Orlistat®, and Mysimba®. Excitingly, Semaglutide (Wegovy) is on its way to being officially licensed for weight loss, as recommended by NICE in February 2022.
Choosing the right medication is crucial, and at The London Obesity Clinic, we prioritise your safety and success.
But practically everyone sells these medications…
Well, not quite. Contrary to simply purchasing online, we provide thorough health screenings, ensuring you’re suitable for the medication. Responsible clinics, like ours, prioritise your well-being and offer the necessary support to make lasting lifestyle changes.
At The London Obesity Clinic, we’ve curated medication packages to meet individual needs and affordability levels. While we may not offer the cheapest prices upfront, rest assured you’re investing in the care and support you deserve.
How you can buy medications from us
There are 2 primary routes to purchase medication at one of our clinics.
1. Join a bespoke weight loss plan (intensive specialist support)
All new clinic patients undergo an initial weight management consultation with an experienced doctor at our clinic. Following this, a medically suitable 3-month plan will be offered to you depending on your needs. This plan may include any of the above mentioned medications if it is deemed safe for you. Each plan comes with a 3-month supply of the chosen medication.
Once your plan starts, your first month’s supply will be sent out along with your sharps bin, patient information leaflet and a virtual consultation to guide you through how to take the medication safely at the correct dosage. We will explain about all the necessary precautions and side effects to be aware of. Throughout your plan, regular follow-ups will be made with a dietitian and, if required, our Simpeace emotional wellbeing coach.
You will be monitored closely during your plan, including your food intake, exercise and wellbeing. In case of any issues with dosage or side effects, we will be available to help you address this as part of your plan.
In addition to this, you will get access to Simplyweight’s Online Weight loss Plan/App for the duration of your plan (see below for details).
Once your 3-month plan is complete, we can evaluate your progress and decide whether you are suitable to continue with the medication or if any changes need to be made.
2. Just buy the medication on its own (online support only)
For those who don’t feel they need such intensive support with their weight loss journey, we also have the option to purchase medication from us directly. If you don’t have any complicated weight-related medical conditions or other underlying issues to address, you may not feel the need to see the doctor for a 1-2-1 initial consultation before getting medication prescribed.
Instead, you simply have to fill out our Online Screening Consultation . Your form will be assessed by our team including a GMC registered doctor. Within 2 business days we will inform you whether the team finds the medication suitable for you. Following that, you’ll be sent a payment link to purchase your medication and be given access to our Simplyweight Online Weight Loss Plan for the duration that you take the medication. E.g. for 1 month’s supply you will get 1 month of the online support.
