This meeting will focus on the science behind the NICE obesity guidance. Dr Adrienne Cullum will present an overview of the evidence that forms the guidelines for the prevention and management of obesity, and Dr Carly Hughes will focus on the recent updates to CG43 - specifically the limiting of VLCD use to exceptional circumstances, and recommendations for referral to and after-care for bariatric surgery. Dr Anthony Leeds will then explore whether the guidance that limits the use of VLCDs is really supported by the scientific evidence, and Dr Helen Paretti will share the RGCP's top tips for managing patients post-bariatric surgery.
