We fully understand at Ashford and St. Peter’s that taking the decision to have surgery, to help with weight loss, is a major decision.

The clinical teams at our hospitals, located in Chertsey (Surrey) and Ashford (Middlesex), are dedicated to your healthcare and treatment.

In appreciation of this, we have designed these pages to inform you of the different types of surgery available, but also what you can expect on your visits.

 

Currently we are offering no face to face appointments, education sessions or support group meetings.

All of our appointments will be made virtually using Attend Anywhere or over the phone.

We are concentrating on making our educational material available online, once that is done we hope to be able to recommence groups virtually.

Thank you for your patience.
