Bariatric support group 

The Bariatric support group is cancelled until further notice. We will update the webpage with more information in due course.

The patient support group is open to anyone considering bariatric surgery and any patient who has already had a bariatric procedure at UCLH. It is a great opportunity to hear other people’s experiences and to get support in managing some of the challenges of weight loss surgery. The sessions are facilitated by the team’s Clinical Psychologist and either one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists or Bariatric Dieticians. Please see the timetable below.

Please meet at 5.15pm in the corner of reception nearest the giant pebble (Euston Road side). The group will run from 5.30pm until 6.30pm, in the seminar room, level 2 of the main hospital (follow the signs for sterile services). If you are late, the UCLH receptionists will hold the details for the meeting location and will be able to direct you there.

The sessions are facilitated by one of the team’s Psychologists and either one of our Clinical Nurse Specialists or Bariatric Dieticians. The talks will focus on subjects like how to eat more protein, how to manage emotional eating and drinking, introducing activity, how surgery may impact partners/friends/family and lots more!

Friends and family members are welcome but we would ask that you bring only one other person with you as space is restricted. Unfortunately, we do not have facilities for young children to attend with you.
