NHS Slimming World Vouchers

I have been attending Slimming World for 10 weeks this week. Someone mentioned to me a couple of weeks back that the NHS offers free vouchers to those with a BMI over 30.

I had also read a success story in the March / April issue of The Slimming World Magazine on page 15 where the lady mentioned she had also used the NHS vouchers.

I was given a phone number to call to self refer to speak to someone. I booked a meeting at my local youth centre.

When I met with the lady I was asked a few health and lifestyle questions; weight, height, eating habits, exercise levels etc. It took no more than 15 minutes.

I was issued with a 12 week countdown for free. All I need to do is meet with her again at the end of the 12 weeks to see how I am getting on.

At group they simply added the vouchers to my profile so I can carry on where I left off. I was able to keep my progress which was very important to me.

You can ask your GP if you want to find out if your local authority is taking part in the scheme.
