Abstract:
Adult obesity in the UK remains a public health priority. Current guidance recommends local areas provide multicomponent interventions to treat adults with overweight and obesity however, there is currently a dearth of published evidence on the evaluation of these programmes. This study reports on a mixed method evaluation of seven tier 2 weight management programmes funded by a local authority in the North of England through their public health grant. Data collected from over 2000 participants demonstrated that the proportion of participants achieving 5% initial body weight loss was comparable to that reported in recent UK weight management trials. Two services exceeded national criteria of 30% of participants achieving 5% initial body weight loss at 12 weeks, although long term data was limited. Greater weight loss was also observed in participants aged 35-44 and those without co-morbidities. This study provides important learning points for improvements in real world weight management services, these include: standardised data collection and management tools; staff training and communication requirements; the importance of programmes that are joined up to wider support services; and the importance of providing ongoing peer and provider support, continuous monitoring and feedback, and physical activities tailored to user needs.
