WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PLAN

Being overweight is a risk for diabetes and heart disease. In our weight management clinics we offer advice, referrals and medication where appropriate for help with losing weight.

THE GOAL OF OUR WEIGHT MANAGEMENT PLAN IS TO LOSE 10KGS OVER 6 MONTHS

If your BMI is over 30 and your weight is causing additional health complications you may be eligible for a GP Weight Management Plan and a Team Care Arrangement. This will allow you to access Medicare rebates on up to five allied health sessions to help you lose weight. These sessions can be with a dietician, exercise physiologist or a psychologist.

Examples of Chronic Medical conditions which may be complicated by weight gain are: Diabetes, Heart Disease, Osteoarthritis, Sleep Apnoea and Metabolic Syndrome.

Please ask your doctor if you believe you have a chronic disease which is aggravated by being overweight to see whether you are eligible for a GP Weight Management Plan and a Team Care Arrangement.
