Louise's Change in Role

Date Added: 22/10/18


Update: Semaglutide for weight loss not currently available in primary care.

  •  Some of you may have seen media reports (many conflicting) about the emergence of Semaglutide (also known by the brand names Ozempic®, Wegovy® and Rybelsus®​) for assisting patients in losing weight.

  • It is already established as a medication for patients with diabetes but it is not yet available for weight loss in primary care.

  • A pilot is being planned by NHS England that is likely to lead to wider availability of semaglutide for weight loss in the future, but it is months in the making.

  • At present, we are unfortunately unable to prescribe semaglutide for weight loss but we will keep this page updated when we know more. 8/6/23
