How Medical Weight Loss Works

NSC Clinics specialises in providing doctor supervised medical weight loss programmes and long term weight management. Medical weight loss is one of the top most effective slimming treatments available. Since 1984 we have offered weight loss support to those who are overweight and obese across the UK. We have built a strong reputation among our patients and their families; more than 70% of our patients join our slimming programmes by recommendation from their family or friends. The Obesity Management Association found that those following a medical slimming programme lost 9% of their body weight in just 12 weeks. Research shows that constant support through doctor consultations is the most effective approach to weight loss and produces the best results.

NSC Clinics offers multiple weight loss treatments, including:

What happens at my first appointment

All new patients will receive a free initial consultation here at National Slimming and Cosmetic Clinics. You will have a one to one consultation with a doctor, who will discuss your eating habits, lifestyle and weight loss goals. You will then receive a medical assessment to decide on the most appropriate slimming treatment for yourself. This may include slimming medication, weight loss injections, natural slimming aids or supplements.

Is medical weight loss safe?

All of our slimming treatments are prescribed by a doctor who will give you a mini health screening before to check that you are suitable for our medication. We only prescribe safe and effective slimming medication, most of which are appetite suppressants with a history of success to help weight loss and treat obesity by increasing one or more brain chemicals that affect mood and appetite. If you would like to find out more information on our medication, please book your free consultation with one of our doctors.

Do I have to change my diet whilst on the medication?

During your consultation, the doctor will issue you with a diet guide and advise you on a healthy eating plan. The quality of your everyday diet is improved by reducing the amount of foods and drinks that are high in calories, fats and sugars that you consume. These are replaced by healthier options that are high in fibre, proteins and nutrients.

Do I have to exercise whilst taking the medication?

Gently increasing activity levels is a desired part of obesity treatment plans. By gradually introducing various exercises including walking, aerobics, swimming and so on, slimmers increase their metabolic rate, become more active in life and improve their general wellbeing and energy levels which in turn leads to faster, more effective weight loss.

What slimming treatments are available?

Your lifestyle, medical history and mini health check will depend on what medication our doctor will prescribe to you.

NSC Clinics offers multiple weight loss treatments, including:

• Appetite Supressants (Phentermine and Diethylpropion)
• Saxenda: Weight Loss Injection
• Xenical: Fat Blocker
• Chromium Supplement
• SlimSlim: Natural Slimming Aid
• Carb Blocker: White Kidney Bean Extract

Am I overweight?

There is an easy way to find out whether you are obese or overweight – Body Mass Index (BMI). Check your BMI by using our calculator. If your BMI is over 30, you are classified as obese. The best obesity treatment and the major factor in reducing your health risks in the future is to lose weight and maintain weight loss long term. It is necessary to modify your diet and lifestyle to achieve successful long term weight loss.

Debra Marlow from Cardiff

"I am so much happier now; I can buy nice clothes that fit me, I am a lot more active and I can enjoy walking the dogs now whereas before it was more of a struggle. I feel a lot healthier and don’t get breathless during day to day activities.*"


J P Keeley from Bristol

"The medication worked like blinkers on a horse, it gave me a power I hadn’t experienced in a long time, the power to walk past food and not be tempted. I could walk through a supermarket, past the bakery and not be drawn like a moth to the cakes. This small power gave me the driving force to take back control; I could now see a point in trying, and the advice that the doctor gave me helped me choose the right foods and take the right exercise.*"
