Happy New Year to All from staff at Amersham Health Centre.
Is your New Year resolution to lose weight?
This year there is a new local initiative offering over weight patients 12 FREE WEEKS at Slimming World or Weight Watchers. This applies if you have a BMI of 30 or greater (or 27.5 in Black and Minority Ethnic groups as potentially more at risk of heart disease).
We have a new BMI pod in the waiting area which measures your height and weight. You are very welcome to come in and use these scales; just ask at reception when you arrive. You can do this on Saturday mornings between 8.30 and 12, as well as on weekdays during normal opening hours.
Please hand in your results to reception and if eligible you will be given the information and form you need to get your free sessions.
Don't delay as this may be a limited NHS offer!
