How it Works
Private prescriptions for weight loss injections
Weight loss injections are prescription-only medications.
If these medications are suitable for you, our GPs or pharmacists can write you a private prescription that you can pick up at your pharmacy visit. If the programme is working for you, you can renew your prescription online every month.
You can get started online right now by filling out our short questionnaire.

What to expect from your pharmacy visit
Your pharmacist will take your body measurements including your weight and blood pressure which they’ll share with the GP. After that, you’ll have a 10-minute video call with the GP, who will make sure that weight loss medication is suitable for you. Then, you can pick up your prescription from the pharmacy 5-10 mins later.
What happens after that?
Once you’ve got your medication, you’ll have weekly and monthly check-ins with us so we can see what’s working for you. Each month, you’ll need to head down to the pharmacy to pick up your next prescription. While you’re there we will check your measurements and share in your success.
How do weight loss drugs work?
Weight loss injections Ozempic and Wegovy are two brand names for the same drug: semaglutide. They are both taken as weekly injections and work by mimicking the actions of the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which is released when we eat. GLP-1 releases insulin into the body, which can help keep blood sugar levels in check and give us the feeling that we’re full.
Semaglutide mimics the effects of GLP-1, so it reduces feelings of hunger—meaning that you eat less and, therefore, lose weight.
Ozempic and Wegovy are medications that are prescribed for weight loss, alongside changes in diet and exercise. They are different brand names for the drug semaglutide, which works by suppressing your appetite and making you feel full. Ozempic is used to treat type 2 diabetes but is often used off-label to help with weight management, while Wegovy is primarily used for weight loss.
Both drugs are delivered through injection pens. These are made with small, thin needs to minimise any pain or discomfort. The medicine is injected when you click the pen.
There are a few simple steps you need to follow to prepare and use the pens, so be sure to carefully read the instructions that will come with your medication. The pens come pre-filled with medication, so it’s easier for you to use.
When you stop taking either Ozempic or Wegovy, it means that you’ll no longer receive any effects from semaglutide. This could mean that any side effects that you were experiencing will stop, but also that your appetite may rise. For some people, this means that they gain some weight back.
Ozempic and Wegovy are intended to be taken alongside changes in diet and lifestyle, so it doesn’t mean that your weight loss journey is over if you can’t or don’t want to use them anymore.
Yes, it can. Ozempic is licenced to treat type 2 diabetes but is commonly used off-label to help with weight loss in people with a BMI over 30 and who have a health issue related to their weight.
Like any prescription medicine, both Wegovy and Ozempic can come with side effects. These can include nausea, diarrhoea, being sick (vomiting), stomach pain, and more. Not everyone who takes these medicines will experience side effects.
Be sure to check in with your doctor if you experience any side effects that bother you or that don’t go away.
