January is the time of year where people are looking at a fresh start, new beginnings and even taking on New Year’s resolutions. For most, this will include wanting to lose weight and adopt a healthier lifestyle, and a lot of people will want to seek out support for this.
Offering a Weight Management Service enables your pharmacy to support customers with obesity wanting to lose weight and where diet and exercise changes alone have not been successful. They will also be able to get trusted advice and guidance from you instead of relying on weightloss fads which could be damaging to their health.
New for 2022, we are working with Novo Nordisk and ECG to support this service and there will be a host of extra resources and support available to you.
- Free training with ECG - you receive a direct contact with Novo Nordisk who will be able to assist in setting up the service and any ongoing support that is needed. Completion of training will also mean you will receive a free PGD to support the service (valid for 12 months).
- ECG mailing list for weekly Q+A webinars to support the Weight Management Service.
- ‘Language matters’ document to support conversations around weight in the pharmacy, pharmacist support materials for during consultations, as well as a host of patient facing materials.
