Shwetha Ravichanderan

Dear Grampian Health Board,
I would be grateful if you could answer a few questions about your Tier 3 and Tier 4 specialist weight management (obesity-related) services,
1. Do you have a Tier 3 specialist weight management service for obesity, with multi-disciplinary input?
2. How many patients have been referred to this service in the past year?
3. What medications are prescribed as part of this service? Specifically, are Orlistat (Xenical) and Saxenda (Liraglutide) prescribed? Or Wegovy (semaglutide) used for obesity management?
4. Do you have a Tier 4 weight management service (i.e. weight-loss surgery)?
5. How many bariatric surgeries have been conducted in the past year?
6. Is there an obesity care pathway for referral and if yes, can this be shared?

Yours faithfully,

Shwetha Ravichanderan
