Message from the ASO Chair
I cannot believe that I am now in my third and final year as Chair of ASO! This year is particularly exciting and an honour as it is also the 50th anniversary of ASO and so far it’s been a very busy year.
In March, we held our first Centres for Obesity Management (COMs) meeting attended by 60 members that focussed on delivery models for Tier 3 services. Members presented examples of current Tier 3 services being delivered and highlighted issues related to commissioning, service delivery and evaluation. Public Health England also presented an update on the guidance currently being developed. The meeting presented a forum for discussion and networking and was well evaluated. I would like to thank ASO Trustees, Rachel Batterham, Barbara McGowan and Carly Hughes for convening this successful event and of course members for attending. Please do encourage colleagues to join – the COM’s network is for anyone involved in the supporting of delivery of obesity…
