A support group for all pre and post-operative Bariatric Surgery patients.

These sessions have been set up to include all bariatric surgery patients, whether you have had surgery or are still awaiting surgery.

It’s a chance to meet up and have an opportunity to talk to other people who have had Weight loss surgery and discuss the challenges that weight loss surgery brings.

For those that have had surgery, it is a chance to celebrate successes and a chance to support each other when things get tough.


These sessions will take place on the last Monday of every month:
