"10% Class @ Kirkstall Leisure Centre"

About: Specialist services / Weight management service

(as the patient),

Staff were very welcoming to the course, and each week was very informative. This lasted for 8 weeks which I found was a good length to the course, I like it and will be going on the first Tuesday of every month for a weigh in session, to check on my progress.

The only thing I found was not enough time was spent when being weighed (during course time), i. e not converting weight to st & lbs and advising on a scale graph - they just logged it and that was it, not much conversation.

To close I would like to say a very good course and will be recommending it to friends and relatives.

Thank you.

Hi Lizz,

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments about our service. I'm pleased that you enjoyed the course and found the information helpful.

I'm sorry that you feel there was not enough discussion when you were weighed. The service has informed me that due to the number of people in a group it can be difficult to have individual conversations at that point in the session. Instead, people are encouraged to raise specific questions at the end of the session. As a result of your comments the service will provide information in stones and pounds, as well as kilograms in future. They are also looking into using scale graphs to show progress.

Kind regards
