Can I get weight loss surgery on the NHS?
In short – yes. However, patients who can receive surgery on the NHS have to meet a very strict list of requirements to just be referred to a surgeon. The whole process if you are accepted takes around three years. The criteria set by the NHS is as follows
- You have a body mass index (BMI) of 40 or more, or a BMI between 35 and 40 and an obesity-related condition that might improve if you lost weight (such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure)
- You’ve tried all other weight loss methods, such as dieting and exercise, but have struggled to lose weight or keep it off
- You agree to long-term follow-up after surgery – such as making healthy lifestyle changes and attending regular check-ups
How much will it cost me?
The cost of weight loss surgery is based on a number of things such as location, procedure, BMI and aftercare. At Healthier Weight we understand that patients don’t always have all the finances to afford surgery so we have developed finance packages to help you spread the cost of surgery.
