We know that it can be just as difficult to choose between weight loss surgery providers as it can be between providers of any service you are looking to buy.
Very often the prices will differ but it is difficult to determine the differences in what you are getting for your money. This is especially true for weight loss surgery for two reasons, one that it’s a service you only ever expect to buy once and secondly because healthcare is such a specialist area.
At Healthier Weight, we’ve built an international reputation as a leading weight loss surgery provider. In the notes below we’ve highlighted some of the main points of difference that are the reasons more patients are choosing Healthier Weight than ever before.
1. Specialists in weight loss
Weight loss surgery is all that we do. By specialising it means that every person in our organisation is dedicated to helping people lose weight. We do not have the distraction of cosmetic surgery procedures that other providers have.
2. No quibble warranties
Our packages include warranties that protect patients in the event they experience recognised complications. These warranties give patients peace of mind that they are not going to incur significant unexpected additional costs.
3. Published data
We have published our data. This is unique among private weight loss providers. It means that we are committed to supporting patients for the long term and to sharing our outcomes.
4. Commitment to aftercare
We have a team of 10 employed nurses who support our Medical Director, leading weight loss surgeon, Mr Rishi Singhal. This team is dedicated to supporting our patients achieve their weight loss goals.
5. Track Record
We have a track record that stretches back nearly 15 years during which time we have been supporting weight loss surgery patients. No other specialist provider has been in existence for as long.
6. Financially Independent and strong
Our company is financially strong and entirely free from debt. Weight loss patients need confidence that their provider will be trading for the long term. Most of the larger cosmetic surgery providers have histories of going into administration and putting their patients at risk. This has not happened at Healthier Weight. You can be confident we are here for the long term.
7. GMC registered surgeons
We work with specialist surgeons only, most of whom are leading weight loss surgeons in the NHS as well as in their private practice.
8. Procedures to protect patients
We have put in place an extensive range of processes and procedures to ensure we maintain high standards of the patient car and that we use all available learning to improve standards. Here are some of the things we do to maintain standards:
- Registered with the Care Quality Commission
- Registered with the Financial Conduct Authority
- Maintain professional indemnity insurance
- Internal Clinical Governance Committee to review outcomes
- Bariatric (weight loss) Surgery Advisory Board to ensure processes and procedures are up to date and in line with good practice
9. Low complication rates
Our published complication rates are low and in line with the best centres in the world.
10. Local Surgery
We regard it as important that patients have surgery close to where they live./ Unlike other providers who channel patients to central locations, often hundreds of miles from where they live (usually for the benefit of their own cost savings) we choose to treat patients close to where they live. This benefits the patient in the event of the need for post-operative revisional surgery or review.
We hope that these features give you confidence and reassurance. We’re here to answer any questions you may have. We’re confident we can deliver the weight loss procedure you need to a high standard and that we are best placed to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
