At the Independent General Practice our Specialist Dietitian, Dr Sue Kenneally (MBBS MRCGP MSc(NutMed) ANutr) offers initial and follow-up consultations, where she will spend time understanding your goals and aims as well as conducting a thorough nutritional assessment.

Using evidence-based nutrition, Dr Kenneally will provide advice and support and you will work together to devise and set goals that are achievable and realistic to help you make steps towards fulfilling your goals.

How it works

On booking your initial consultation, you will receive a food diary to complete, usually consisting of what you eat over three weekdays and one at the weekend. This will help give Dr Kenneally an idea beforehand of the best way to approach your weight loss.

Your first consultation will be 60 minutes and will consist of:

  • A discussion of your history concerning your weight and weight loss, and exploring what has led to weight gain with the intention of resolving/managing this.

  • A review of your current lifestyle diet, physical activity, sleep, stress and the food diary completed prior

  • Various examinations such as weight and body composition, waist circumference and general examination assessing for end organ damage

  • A blood test is optional and provides the ability to assess a number of key bio-markers enabling a more thorough and person specific weight loss plan. Some prescription wight loss medication require blood tests before prescriptions can be issued.

  • Calculating your Epworth Score

  • Goal setting - Using principles of motivational interviewing to set weight related goals

  • Prescription where appropriate Orlistat, liraglutide, Mysimba

  • Follow up consultations are carried out at determined intervals where assessment can be made and if necessary alterations to your plan can be implemented.
