Why Weight Sheffield is the new weight management service for the city that is a one stop shop for issues surrounding weight, regardless of age, gender or BMI. The referral form is available to download below. All services are free and more information can be found on our website www.whyweightsheffield.co.uk
When referring, you can simply pass the details over to us and we can triage into the correct service for the patient after making initial contact with them. All childhood and adult services (other than Fresh Start, see below) accept referrals from any source and patients can also self-refer via our website or over the phone, if in any doubt visit our website or contact us on
0114 321 1253.
The only service where we need a health professional or GP referral for is our Tier 3 Fresh Start service, this replaces the old Weigh Ahead programme and is for clients that have more complex needs and higher BMI’s.
The general rule is if in doubt refer and we will contact you and the client from there.
