Wegovy weight loss packages

Wegovy is the first injectable licensed weight loss product in the UK and shows exciting results

Here at Coastal we have worked hard to find a way of providing these that offers safe and sustainable long term changes to your health and not just a prescription.

Our weight management package is a holistic approach to managing your health and your weight. All under GP led care your prescriptions will be safely issued, your health monitored with nutrition screening blood tests and then you’ll have a personal nutrition and wellbeing coach who will support you with your diet.

Your GP will always be available via email for queries and questions. And at the 3 month point a further GP health review will make sure things are still on track.

What does the package involve?

The initial program is 3 months long but can be extended as needed and is aimed at patients with a BMI over 30 (or over 27 with other health problems) who would like to embark on injectable weight loss treatment (Wegovy).

The program will include an initial GP assessment for suitability, blood tests for nutritional markers and overall wellness and your prescription of Wegovy. Following this you will have regular contact with our nutrition coach- we would normally suggest week 2, 4 and 7 but can be more or less frequent as needed. This can be either face to face, video platform or email/phone.  The cost of the initial 3 month program is £900 which can be paid monthly and includes the medications.

What the program might look like for you:

  • Day 1– appointment with GP for history taking and suitability for treatment. Bloods to be run to consider nutritional deficiencies and cholesterol/blood sugars. If suitable start prescription medication

  • Week 2 – Meet with our nutritionist to discuss nutrition, side effects, motivational support

  • Week 4 – Meet with our nutritionist. GP will issue review medication and issue repeat if appropriate

  • Week 7-8 – Meet with our nutritionist. GP will issue review medication and issue repeat if appropriate

  • Week 11-12 – Meet with GP to assess progress and rerun blood tests if required. Come up with a joint plan to see if you wish to continue the program from month 4-6

What is Wegovy?

Wegovy is a once weekly injection that contains an substance which mimics a natural hormone called GLP-1 which helps regulate appetite and increases the feeling of fullness.

What results can I expect from Wegovy?

Clinical trials suggest that Wegovy is effective in patients that are overweight or obese. These trails have shown weight loss of around 15-50%. Weight loss varies for many reasons and the idea of offering you a package is to support with diet and lifestyle advice so you can have long term benefits to your weight.

Is Wegovy suitable for me?

Wegovy is only licenced in those with a BMI over 30 (obese) or over 27 if you have additional health problems such as high blood pressure or diabetes.

Patients with a history of thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine tumour or pancreatitis are not suitable for this patient. Pregnant women must not use Wegovy.

How long will it take to work?

Wegovy starts working in 24 hours but it can take some weeks or months to build up to the correct dose for you. Our initial plan is 3 months as we would hope you will see good results at this point.

How much is the package?

The package is £900 for 3 months to include your medications, blood tests, nutritional support and GP appointments. You will be supported throughout the process as much as needed.
