What is the programme?

The programme combines personalised care from a healthcare professional with highly engaging digital tools.

Because it is a remote, app-based programme, you can take part from home and at a time that suits you.

To start, your needs and goals will be assessed and used to create a personalised plan that makes sense to you.

You can track your food, mood, activity, and progress through the app, with your dedicated coach adding expert advice, tailored specifically to you.



How can I find out more or sign up?

Oviva’s website will help you discover more about the Tier 2 Weight Management Programme.

You can read about how it works, how the app helps you set targets and track your progress, and hear from people who have completed the programmes themselves.

Previously, this service was only available through a formal referral from a Doctor, but people in Newcastle can now refer themselves directly.

That is why we wanted to share this excellent, free service with our patients.

All you need to do is visit and complete the form at the foot of the page.
