If your child has been invited for a face-to-face appointment or procedure, it’s important you still come unless you hear otherwise.
To help keep everyone safe, only one parent or carer can attend. No other family or friends can visit.

Healthy weight specialist nurse

What we do

The healthy weight specialist nurses support children aged 5-12 in Lambeth and Southwark who have been identified as being above a healthy weight. We work with children and their families to make lifestyle changes that will help them become healthier.

We offer one-to-one appointments in community health centres and can refer your child to a weight management programme if needed.

Please note that all children will be weighed and measured at their appointment.


If you are a parent and you are concerned about your child's weight, you can refer them to our service by calling the healthy weight specialist nurse in your area using the contact details on the right side of this page.

You can also use the healthy weight specialist nurse referral form (Word 181Kb). Professionals can also refer a child but you must have consent from the child's parent before referring. Please return all referral forms to gst-tr.healthyweight@nhs.net.
