Course description: As obesity is a chronic relapsing condition requiring lifelong support, and its prevention and management can prevent future physical and psychosocial sequelae, the whole primary care team plays a vital part in the improvement in these patients’ quality of life. This five minute screencast looks at how weight management can be addressed during the GP consultation, a run through of tier-based management and an overview of the wide range of tier services offered by the local obesity services.
