Medical Policy

We Slim Together and all associated services are not intended as a substitute for any advice or treatment prescribed by a doctor.

It is the responsibility of each member to ensure that there are no medical reasons why they should not begin a healthy eating campaign.

If in any doubt at all, members should speak to their doctor.

  • We Slim Together is available to members between the ages of 12 and 16th birthday free of charge and only if they are accompanied by a paying adult.
  • Anyone who has any medical problems, is taking any medication, is pregnant or breast-feeding must disclose this information during registration.
  • Members with diabetes or celiac disease will be able to benefit fully from our healthy eating plan and should always incorporate the advice given by their care team or GP.
Because our members’ health is important to us, we’re unable to offer membership to the following groups:
  • People with eating disorders. If you have or if you are concerned that you may have an eating disorder it is important to consult your doctor for advice.
  • People with cancer, liver or kidney disease. There is always a risk that any weight changes you experience could be due to your illness rather than dietary adjustments and we would be concerned about supporting you properly and fully in your weight loss campaign. If you were looking to lose weight during your illness or treatment, we would encourage you to discuss your weight concerns with your doctor or specialist.
  • Mums to be: Members who become pregnant after joining We Slim Together will have limited access to the weight support service.

If you have a medical condition, which may be adversely affected by exercise you should consult your doctor before following any exercise information given. It is required that each member takes personal responsibility for themselves when doing any exercise that has been advised by We Slim Together or their representative, either at or outside the group. If, at any time while exercising, a member feels any ill effects then they must stop doing the exercise and it is advisable that they check this out with their doctor.
