Aftercare and support
Aftercare and support
With The Hospital Group, you can rest assured you are supported through every stage of your journey. All our weight loss procedures, whether it be gastric band, gastric bypass, gastric sleeve (sleeve gastrectomy) or Gastric Balloon, are always performed by highly qualified GMC registered surgeons.
Why do I need an aftercare package? Aftercare is an important factor in reaching your weight loss goals. Weight loss surgery is a first step in your life-changing journey. Our aftercare is designed to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Our team of dedicated and highly qualified weight loss experts provides an on-going support as part of your aftercare package.
Here at The Hospital Group, we know that your weight loss journey is not always easy and will be different for everybody. With us, you can choose up to 6 years of aftercare and rest assured you will be looked after by our weight loss support team throughout. Our aftercare packages include the following benefits.
Up to 6 years peace of mind
Claims such as ‘lifetime aftercare’ might not actually mean you are covered for your whole lifetime, and there’s no such thing as ‘unlimited’ care. At The Hospital Group, we provide market-leading aftercare packages that give you up to six years peace of mind.
On-going expert dietitian support
Your dedicated team of expert dietitians will guide your diet throughout your journey with us, from your pre-operative diet to your long-term lifestyle change. Our specialist team will continue to provide you with support to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
Support of highly qualified nursing team
Your team of specialised nurses will provide advice and support before and after surgery. In the initial days following surgery, your nurse be there to answer your questions and will guide you through understanding your medications, and the healing process.
Regular contact with your weight loss support team
We're always with you. Throughout your weight loss journey you have access to appointments across all of our clinics as well as a 24-hour emergency phone number so you're always supported, especially when you need us the most.
The below guide illustrates what a typical weight loss journey and aftercare looks like with The Hospital Group. Your individual journey will vary depending on your own needs and chosen weight loss procedure.
To get the most benefit out of your weight loss surgery, would it be gastric band, gastric bypass or gastric sleeve, and to help you achieve your weight loss goals, we offer ongoing appointments with specialist nurses and dietitians across the UK as part of your aftercare for up to 6 years depending on the package purchased.
For gastric band specifically, most people require 4-6 adjustments to their gastric band before it is correctly adjusted. We recommend regular appointments in this initial period, and evidence shows that those who engage in regular follow-up are more likely to succeed in the long-term weight loss goals.
Whatever your requirements, our dietitians and nurses are here to support you every step of your journey.
We have a dedicated weight loss support team who will look after you if your aftercare has come to an end. We have various weight loss packages as well as singular sessions and appointments available with our highly experienced dietitians, nurses, patient advisors and surgeons if required. These are available to all weight loss surgery patients whether you had a gastric band, gastric bypass or gastric sleeve surgery. To find more about options available to you, please ring our friendly weight loss support team on 0121 445 7547 who will be able to advise.
