Healthy eating

Use this guide to help you make better food choices for healthier living, get information on our weight management service and access support for meals at home.

Weight management service

If you’re registered with a Lambeth GP, you can ask for a referral to the new weight management service provided by Guy’s and St Thomas' NHS Trust.

This high-quality, individualised service includes:

  • practical sessions to increase physical activity levels
  • education to improve diet and reduce calorie intake.

The combination of education and practice can help users to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

GP referral

You will need to ask your GP to make a referral for a clinical assessment. You will be assessed on whether the programme is right for you based on:

  • your body mass index (BMI)
  • any long-term health conditions, such as diabetes
  • your motivation to change
  • your motivation to stick to the plan to find your healthy weight.
