Discuss your options with your GP to find out what is best for you. If you think that bariatric surgery may be option for you, together you can discuss the option of a referral to learn more about weight loss surgery.
Some weight loss clinics hold introductory information sessions for patients who want to learn more about the option of surgery.
Your GP may be able to refer you to a clinic or surgeon they know. Some GPs will be happy for you to make the choice of which clinic you would like to be referred to. Click on Speak to your GP to see the physician finder where you can find weight loss (bariatric) clinics.
