Children’s Healthy Weight Team (Hounslow)

From 1 April 2016, our Children's Healthy Weight Team became part of our new One You Hounslow service - a new single hub service which help local people in Hounslow to improve their health and well-being. 

Our Children's Healthy Weight Team will continue to offer the same high-quality service - but should now be accessed through the new One You Hounslow service, instead of via the service's previous contact details and referral process.

The new service now features a new 8 weight management programme for families with children aged 5-13 years old / teenagers aged 14-19 years old, as well as parent nutrition workshops.
