Published weight management medication pathway

Dear Colleagues,

I am writing to notify you that the Weight Management Medication Pathway has been published. A copy of the document is attached to this Welsh health circular and can be accessed through the Welsh Government website.

This document is an addendum to the 'All Wales weight management pathway' and has been produced in response to the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE)'s approval of new medications for weight management. The document should be read in conjunction with the 'All Wales weight management pathway' document and relevant NICE guidance for medication.

Yours sincerely,

Judith Paget.
