Delighted to have met Tracy at the open day, spent and hour and a half discussing plans to revolutionise weight management services for north wales. A tailored approach flexible for those wanting to self-manage their care at home with the help of apps, social media and a telephone service or those requiring more physiological help with binge eating, comfort eating and understanding the issues underpinning their resistant excessive weight. The idea is we look at improving their life, providing benefits such as reduced blood pressure, healthier attitude to weight and eating, improved blood sugars and cholesterol.
