Why Oviva?

At Oviva, we will work with you to develop a plan tailored to your needs. As part of your plan, you will receive personalised support from a specialist weight management dietitian and a health coach, along with other healthcare professionals which can include clinical psychologists or psychological wellbeing practitioners and weight management doctors.

The provision of Tier 3 weight management services varies across the UK, and there are multiple barriers to attendance.

First, we will discuss your previous medical history. We’ll ask questions about your eating habits, your everyday life and your environment to understand more about who you are.
