Fever in Children Under 5
We are aware that semaglutide (Wegovy) has recently been licensed for weight loss. Locally GPs are not able to prescribe it for this indication (only for diabetes). If your BMI is over 40 then we can refer you to the local weight management program where they will consider prescribing it. If this is the case, then please book a routine GP appointment as we will need to measure your height and weight.
