Survey on weight management services

The health landscape has been drastically altered by COVID-19. While the impact has been felt right across the obesity space, COVID-19 has had a significant upon weight management and bariatric surgery.
In order to quantify this effect, Dr Adrian Brown and Professor Rachel Batterham, from UCL, along with other collaborators, have obtained ethical permission for a survey for healthcare professionals and a separate survey for people living with obesity.

Both surveys take around 18 minutes each to complete. There are no right or wrong answers, and all responses will remain anonymous.

Healthcare professionals are invited to fill in the HCP survey below, and to distribute the patient survey to their patients living with obesity.

If you have any questions or would like more information about the survey, please contact
