Introducing Wegovy (Semaglutide): Your Key to Successful Weight Management
We are delighted to offer Wegovy (Semaglutide) treatment, a groundbreaking once-weekly self-administered injection. When used in conjunction with a tailored diet, physical activity, and behavioural support, Wegovy has shown remarkable results, with an average 15% reduction in body weight achievable within a year.
This impressive weight loss not only enhances your overall well-being but significantly reduces the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes, heart, kidney, and liver diseases, along with a lowered risk of cancer.
We know several services now offering this treatment and are keen to ensure we provide a professional, evidence-based, and supportive service.
If you meet the eligibility criteria for Wegovy and wish to have this medication to assist with weight loss, please book an initial remote Weight Management appointment (20 minutes) with one of our GPs.
If you qualify for Wegovy based on this assessment – your clinician will then arrange a 30-minute face-to-face appointment for a physical health check to review your lifestyle and provide instructions on using and monitoring the medication. If blood tests haven’t been carried out within the past six months, these will be arranged as part of your assessment.
Achieving and maintaining a lower body weight for patients taking Wegovy is more successful when patients use this medication in conjunction with a weight loss support program. We are therefore delighted to offer all patients prescribed Wegovy free access to Dr. Gillvray’s lifestyle program, which will include an exercise program, nutrition tracking and advice, weight tracking, and habit support. This will be delivered through an online or app-based service and supplemented by weekly live webinars on health topics such as nutrition, stress, sleep, and exercise.
The monthly cost for the Wegovy medication and the lifestyle program will be:
(0.25mg to 1mg) £250
The monthly cost for the Wegovy medication and the message support only will be:
(0.25mg to 1mg) £210
If Wegovy is not felt to be appropriate, you can still access the lifestyle program for £99 per month.
Unfortunately, you cannot be prescribed Wegovy if you have certain health conditions. This includes Type 1 Diabetes, severe chronic kidney or liver disease, pancreatitis, thyroid cancer, heart failure, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and inflammatory bowel disease. However, you may still benefit from the lifestyle program.
There is a tiny needle on the injector pen. You replace this at every injection. We will supply you with a small “sharps tube” to keep this safe. You bring the tube to your six-monthly review and we will dispose of it safely for you
Comprehensive Support: Wegovy and Dr. Gillvray’s Lifestyle Programme
Studies show that achieving and maintaining a lower body weight is more successful when coupled with a robust weight loss support program. We are excited to offer all Wegovy patients complimentary access to Dr. Gillvray’s lifestyle program. This comprehensive package includes an exercise program, nutrition tracking and advice, weight tracking, and habit support, all delivered conveniently through an online or app-based service. Weekly live webinars on essential health topics such as nutrition, stress, sleep, and exercise will further enhance your journey.
If Wegovy is not deemed appropriate for you, the lifestyle program is available independently for £99 per month.

Ongoing Care and Monitoring for Your Long-Term Success
To ensure your continued success, we recommend a review every six months, complete with updated blood tests, blood pressure monitoring, and weight assessment. These reviews, charged at the usual rate, provide an opportunity for personalized support and adjustments to your plan. If you have specific health conditions such as Type 2 diabetes or kidney disease, we may suggest more frequent monitoring.
We are genuinely excited about the transformative potential of this program and look forward to partnering with you on your journey to a healthier, happier you. To take the first step, please book your initial remote Weight Management appointment at your earliest convenience.
Thank you for considering this opportunity, and we are here to support you every step of the way.
