How to refer

Health and other professionals can signpost patients/people to our website to apply to join our weight programmes. Patients can also apply and book an NHS Health Check or their first stop smoking appointment online too.

Coming soon – online referral on behalf of a patient/person in your care.  

Professionals can only refer patients through paper forms for the following programmes:

Liveability (weight management for people with learning disabilities). Download the Live IT/Kick IT form (supporting children to manage weight/stop smoking).
