If you’re looking to lose weight through a supportive medical weight loss programme with safe and effective prescription weight loss medications and are considering visiting a slimming clinic, it’s important to know what to expect. At Bodyline, we have over 15 years of experience and have supported over 40,000 clients to achieve their weight loss goals. Bodyline is proud to be CQC registered ensuring your health and safety. Our clinics are located throughout the North West of England and if you do not live near a clinic then Bodyline offers an on-line ‘home’ consultation service. In this article, we’ll tell you more about what to expect when you visit us at Bodyline Medical Weight Loss Clinic in St Helens.
What you need to do before your first visit
After your initial Bodyline telephone consultation with the friendly customer services team and it is confirmed that a Bodyline medical weight loss programme is suitable for you, an initial payment is taken. There is also some preparation you are required to do prior to your first clinic appointment. Our customer services team will provide you with a medical questionnaire that you must complete before your appointment.
What will happen during your first visit
During your first visit, your photo will be taken for identification purposes. You will meet with one of our nurses who will review your medical history and ask about your weight loss goals. We’ll also take some measurements, such as your height, weight, and waist circumference. Your blood pressure will also be taken. Based on this information, we’ll develop a personalised weight loss plan for you and suitable medication will be prescribed. This plan may include lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet, nutrition advice and exercising regularly. We will only prescribe two weeks of medication to help you lose weight and to ensure that the medication suits you before further medication is given.
What to expect after your first visit
After your first visit, you’ll be given a schedule of follow-up visits. Your next appointment will be two weeks after your first visit to ensure that your medication is suiting you and delivering results. At the following appointments a month medication will be prescribed and we will track your progress and make any necessary adjustments to your plan. We’ll also provide you with support and guidance to help you stay on track.
We know that losing weight can be challenging, but we’re here to help. If you’re ready to start your weight loss journey, schedule an appointment at Bodyline Medical Weight Loss Clinic in St Helens today. We look forward to meeting you!
