Healthy Weight Management Programme (Tier 2 and Tier 3)

The decision is to waive section 8.2 of the Council’s Contract standing orders and to grant an extension for the Healthy Weight Management contracts to provide Tier 2 and 3 weight management services.

Tier 2 weight management service provides a structured and flexible weight management programme for children (aged 4-12) and their families. Tier 3 weight management service is for children ages 4-12 years old who are overweight or obese with additional and complex needs or co-morbidities.

Weight management services assist the Council in working towards
• shifting more underweight children into the healthy weight category;
• supporting healthy weight children to maintain their healthy weight status;
• preventing overweight children from becoming obese and helping them achieve healthy weight status and
• reducing the proportion of children that are obese by moving them towards the healthy weight category
