LEAP Weight Management Groups

What is LEAP?


A free NHS weight management group with healthy eating and fun sports activities run by a Dietitian and a local exercise instructor. Each week there is a healthy eating topic to focus on and some group exercise. There are also weekly weigh-ins once the 12 week course finishes.


The aim is to lose weight sensibly and gradually and keep it off by learning about eating well and by being more active. Patients learn the skills they need to help them manage their weight on a long term basis. Daytime and evening courses are available. Any patient with a county GP can be referred to the programme.
