Patient journey

If you have tried everything to lose weight but haven’t succeeded, you might want to consider weight loss surgery. The Stirling Weight Loss clinic welcomes any patients. You don’t need a GP referral letter to attend the clinic. However, we would communicate with your GPs about your surgery and treatment plan.

The following graph gives you an indication of a patient journey at the Stirling Weight Loss clinic.

Initial referrals will be vetted to see if it is appropriate for the patient to be considered at an early stage for Bariatric Surgery or whether preparatory work is required.

  1. Consultation with the Consultant Surgeon
  2. Dietician assessment
  3. Psychological assessment if appropriate
  4. Pre-surgery hospital appointment: pre-admission, anaesthetic review
  5. Surgery

If surgery is not appropriate initially, you will have a consultation with the Consultant Endocrinologist to assess any medical co-morbidities, consider exercise referral or the use of extreme low calorie diet.
