"Weight management course information"

About: NHS Lanarkshire

(as the patient),

I have Polycystic ovary syndrome (POCS) and a BMI over 50. I went to my GP 3 years ago (she is no longer at the practice). I heard about weight management but she came back 6 weeks later to say I couldn't get in as I live in east kilbride. I never saw any letters.

Can you tell me if this is the case? I have heard so much about the weight management course, I really want to give it a try.
