New Leaf Healthcare (formerly Healthcare2000) is a highly reputable private clinic which has been successfully treating patients since 1988 and was the first weight management clinic in the UK to be registered by the Health Care Commission, now reigsitered with the Government's health regulator, the Care Quality Commission.
The clinic successfully helps their patients achieve weight loss through a medical weight management programme. Patients work with a fully qualified doctor and with the help of suitable prescription medication to control appetite, feel less hungry and therefore find it easier to make the necessary dietary and lifestyle changes.
The programme does not normally use meal replacements or milky drinks or advocate any diet that patients cannot continue with for the rest of their life. Patients are also given motivation, diet sheets and other information to help them manage weight and improve their self-image.
The treatment is highly successful whereas most diets just do not work as they are based on short term weight loss achieved by short term dietary changes.
A new patient consultation takes about 20 minutes when the doctor completes a medical questionnaire, checks blood pressure and discusses the patient’s lifestyle and weight objectives. Medication is prescribed, if suitable, for the week ahead and administered in house from the clinics controlled drugs cabinet. The current charge for the weekly consultation and medication is less than £16 per week.
The clinic is centrally located in the centre of Leeds; close by to both rail and road links.
The business is well established, is a founder member of the Obesity Management Association and is registered with the Healthcare Commission in England.
