Weight Management Service

Weight Management Services for adults

We offer a range of services for adults in the Aneurin Bevan Health Board area who would like support with losing weight. These services will provide you with the knowledge, tools and support you need for successful, sustainable weight loss with a focus on promoting health and wellbeing.

During the pandemic some of our services will be delivered remotely by telephone or video link. More details about the services provided and how you can refer yourself can be found below.


If you are thinking about having a vasectomy you can now refer yourself for this, you don’t need to be referred by your doctor. The first step is to ring 01495 765065 and choose option 3, during office hours.

You will be asked about medication, weight, allergies and scrotal lumps/previous surgery. If your medical history is suitable, you can be added to the waiting list and contacted once an appointment becomes available.

All the pre op information will be sent to you by email, including a short video clip. This is available to watch here if you wish.


People across Wales can now access free online therapy without needing to go through their GP.

People aged 16 and over experiencing mild to moderate anxiety, depression or stress can sign-up for a 12-week course of SilverCloud online therapy via their smartphone, tablet, laptop or desktop computer.

We have launched a partnership with south Gwynedd based charity Tan y Maen to help more people access the courses.

The roll-out of direct access to online therapy for Wales’ entire 16+ population recognises that people need immediate help in managing their mental health and wellbeing as the impact of COVID-19 continues to be felt, and reduces barriers to accessing this support.
