Bariatric Support GroupAs part of the Trust's commitment to enable all our patients to live happy, healthy and fulfilling lives, we organise a number of support groups.
The Bariatric Support Group enables patients to meet and discuss the issues they face, share information, meet friends and overcome difficulties. We have found that being part of a group promotes social interaction and members can draw on the experience of people in similar situations.
With the help of clinicians who specialise in bariatic care and the treatment of metabolic conditions, group members can take appropriate steps towards a healthier lifestyle in a managed and supported way.
The purpose of the group is to reduce future health problems for members that may be created by a bariatric condition. By taking the group outside of the hospital environment, we can support patients in a more natural environment.
Below are the future meeting dates and we shall also post useful weblinks and information resources generated by our group discussions:
- August 26th 2011
- September 30th 2011
- October 28th 2011
- November 25th 2011
Your clinician will be able to advise you of the contact details for the group and whether it would be suitable for you.
Together we can take the next steps to a fitter and happier future.
