'Connect' Child and Young Person Weight Management Service

 

Connect’ the first Tier 3 Child and Young Person Weight Management Service in Wales.


We are a team of professionals working together with CYP and their families to help manage their weight and improve their physical and emotional health. The team is made up of a paediatrician, specialist dietitian, specialist nurse, psychologists and a therapy assistant practitioner.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, the services that we normally offer are not running for the foreseeable future in order to protect our families and our clinicians. At present we are only able to offer telephone consultations and/or virtual group sessions providing practical advice and support.

We continue to accept ‘Request for Help’ forms from health professionals and all new and current CYP and their families will be able to ‘opt in’ to our virtual service or choose to be re-referred at a later date.

During this period, the following links may be useful for CYP and their families to continue to obtain advice and support.

All future updates for the service will be posted here so please check the website for up to date information.
