In collaboration with Leeds Beckett University, Leeds University and University College London, the Obesity and Healthy Weight team, PHE have published a report on supporting weight management services during the COVID-19 pandemic (phase I).
This rapid research explores with service providers, commissioners and users how weight management services have adapted in response to the pandemic and explores what measures are required to facilitate these changes. In addition, a set of guiding principles for service users, service providers and commissioners are provided. The report is included as part of the collection for weight management and guidance for commissioners and providers. Alongside the report, 17 local practice examples to showcase how areas have continued to provide support are set out in an annexe.
