What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is a licensed and approved prescription medication for managing weight-loss and obesity.

Wegovy contains the active ingredient, Semaglutide, a hormone that regulates our glucose metabolism and appetite. Wegovy triggers regions of your brain, imitating the action of your body’s natural appetite-regulating hormone. This will leave you feeling less hungry and fuller, meaning you will eat less and in turn can result in you losing weight.

How does Wegovy work?

Semaglutide is licensed and approved for managing adult obesity or anyone overweight who have at least one weight-related medical condition under the trade name of Wegovy.

This weight management prescription medication, Wegovy, is administered as a once-weekly injection and works by mimicking the effects of Semaglutide (GLP-1), a hormone that regulates glucose metabolism and appetite.

It is clear that Wegovy is a long-term treatment that should be used alongside lifestyle modifications such as diet and physical activity.

Do you offer Ozempic?

No, we no longer offer Ozempic. We currently offer Wegovy for weight-loss management. Both Ozempic and Wegovy are licensed brands that use the same active ingredient, Semaglutide. The main difference between the two is the amount of semaglutide each one contains, with Wegovy approved to have a higher amount of semaglutide. Wegovy also is specifically licensed and approved for those dealing with obesity and weight-related problems, with Ozempic being used to treat type 2 diabetes.

Are there any side effects?

The main reported side effects of Wegovy are nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, constipation and headache. These can be experienced in up to 10% of people, however the side effects do reduce and resolve over time.

What does the plan cost?

The consultation form needs to be completed first. This determines whether or not you are suitable for the weight loss management plan. If suitable, a £200 deposit will need to be paid when you book your consultation with Doctor Victoria Manning. £250 will then need to be paid at your consultation.  There is then a monthly cost of £295.

These costs include the prescription of Wegovy pen, thorough consultation face to face with Dr Victoria Manning, educated on how to self-medicate Wegovy pen, anti-sickness medication (only to be used if needed), weekly check- in’s from a member of the Patient Care Team.

What is The National Medical weight Loss Programme?

The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP), is a national service using FDA approved medication, whicch is licensed for weight management. The programme consists of a calorie controlled diet with the addition of a once weekly medication. You give this yourself using a tiny injection pen.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Many factors will affect your results, including your diet and fitness levels. On average people have lost around a stone (6.5kg) every 4-6 weeks.

What do I do once I reach my ideal weight?

We will discuss your options once you have achieved your target. Most people feel happy to maintain their lifestyle to manage weight regain. You do have the option of staying on a low maintenance dose to help with this.

How do I begin treatment?

Step 1  

First, you will need to complete this online consultation form. This will help us to establish whether this medication would be appropriate for you. This consultation form will only take a few minutes to complete, and is encrypted and password protected to ensure your details are kept confidential. 


Step 2 

Your questionnaire will be reviewed by our Doctor and a consultation will be arranged to discuss your plan.  


Step 3 

If treatment is “approved”, we will take you through an informed consent process discussing risks & benefits, alternative treatments, potential side effects and how to manage these. We will carry out a full assessment of your medical history and BMI before a practical demonstration on how to use the pen takes place. 


Step 4 

We will prescribe your Wegovy pen and show you how to self administer the weekly injection (each pen contains 4 weekly treatments). This is easy for you to do once we have shown you how to use it.

Once you are settled on the medication, we will check your weight once a month and continue to prescribe the correct dose of medication for your weight loss goals. A doctor is there for you every step of the way to support you in your weight loss journey. 

I don't like needles - will it hurt?

The needles are super fine and painless. The plan requires one injection a week, and we will show you how to administer the injection.

What causes Obesity?

Obesity is a treatable disease that is a worldwide health concern associated with having an excess amount of body fat. It is caused by genetic and environmental factors and can be difficult to control through dieting alone. Obesity is diagnosed by a healthcare provider and is classified as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater.  

Obesity is related to increased risks of cancers of the oesophagus, breast (postmenopausal), endometrium (the lining of the uterus), colon and rectum, kidney, pancreas, thyroid, gallbladder, and possibly other cancer types. Several possible mechanisms have been suggested to explain the association of obesity with increased risk of certain cancers: 

Fat tissue produces excess amounts of estrogen, high levels of which have been associated with the risk of breast, endometrial, and some other cancers.

Patients with obesity/overweight have increased levels of insulin and insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) in their blood (a condition known as hyperinsulinemia or insulin resistance), which may promote the development of certain tumors. 

Fat cells produce hormones, called adipokines, which may stime or inhibit cell growth. For example, leptin, which is more abundant in obesity , seems to promote cell growth, whereas adiponectin, which is less abundant in obesity, may have anti-growth effects.  

Fat cells may also have direct and indirect effects on other markers related to growth of tumors.

Patients with obesity often have chronic low-level, or “subacute,” inflammation, which has been associated with increased cancer risk.

13 Types of Obesity-Related Cancers Include:  

Meningioma (brain tissue and spinal cord) 
Adenocarcinoma of the oesophagus
Multiple myeloma (blood cells) 
Breast (post-menopausal women) 
Upper stomach 
Colon and rectal
