Hi Trafalgar and welcome to the site.

Westminster PCT follow the NICE guidelines which state a minimum BMI of 40. They don’t specify an upper limit, unlike some other PCTs. Our surgeons will consider each patient as an individual. If you are considering surgery with one of our team, you will need your GP to refer you directly to the office at Chichester. They will arrange for an appointment after the PCT has agreed to fund any further treatment.

In the meanwhile, list and problems that may be related to your weight and have these ready in case you need to appeal. If they do refuse, don’t give up and it is possible to get funded on appeal.
