Abstract

Childhood Obesity is a problem of epidemic proportions. The causes are complex and treatment results are variable with much research ongoing. We analysed the initial assessment forms of a group of patients attending the W82GO! Healthy Lifestyle service at The Children's University Hospital, Temple Street to look at the population and their specific needs. Our analysis revealed a high proportion of emotional and behavioural problems along with bullying. This group of patients are complex and a multi-disciplinary team approach is essential in their treatment.
