What is Lifeshape?

Changes to Lifeshape

The Lifeshape offer of WW vouchers (previously Weight Watchers) is now included as part of our new Healthy Weight pathway for One You South Gloucestershire.  As a health practitioner you can still refer your patients into Lifeshape using EMIS in the usual way, and you can also use the webform on the Refer to us pages.

To make it easier for people to access our services we are now accepting self-referrals, and if you think that might work better for some of your patients please send them this contact form link.


As an adult service* One You South Gloucestershire is for those aged 18+* and other than that the eligibility criteria remains the same:

  1. BMI ≥ 30 (BMI ≥ 28 with co-morbidities or BMI ≥ 27.5 if South Asian or Chinese).
  2. Clinically stable
  3. Demonstrable commitment to complete the intervention.
  4. Not pregnant.
  5. *Where a patient is aged 16 to 18 years with a BMI equal to or greater than the 98th centile on gender appropriate centile BMI charts.  If there is another reason – medical or otherwise – which is considered by a practitioner to be pertinent to a relaxation in the age criteria then this would need to be stated on the webform and acceptance subject to confirmation by one of our specialist practitioners.
