An insight

Terrific series. Highly recommended. I actually quite like the messages from the health care professionals as well as those living with this disease.

A must for those interested in this area.

Recommend

Really good series and thoroughly recommend. If you are planning a 2nd series, it would be great to have more “reality” guests and less professionals. I would like to hear more real life stories. Many thanks

Thank you

Thank you I will listen every week. So informative and great to hear real life experiences. I am currently at end of tier 3 NHS pathway for bariatric surgery.
