Managing Patients' Post-Bariatric Surgery

Publication date: June 2022

In response to requests for more information from GPs, we have published a new list of FAQs on the management and monitoring of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery. We have consulted with secondary care and CCG colleagues on the information provided, which we hope you will find a useful guide to the most common scenarios arising from bariatric surgery, including:

  • What do NHS patients get?
  • What happens after 2 years?
  • What about private patients?
  • What about private patients who have had surgery abroad?
