Public Health England has published A Guide to Delivering and Commissioning Tier 2 Adult Weight Management Services, to help local authorities, clinical commissioning groups and providers plan and deliver weight management services. The guide includes information and resources around making the case, the design and delivery of the service - including how to incorporate behaviour change techniques – and advice on how to understand the needs of the local population and tailor services accordingly. As well as recommendations on how to engage with health and care professionals, the release includes additional resources, including Let’s Talk About Weight which helps health professionals discuss weight management with patients and increase referrals to the service. The guide is co-badged with NICE, LGA, ADPH and RCP.
