Introducing Verve Health Group

We understand that the control of bodyweight is a complex but largely genetic issue, and that losing weight can be extremely difficult and demoralising.

We can help with weight loss interventions and provide transformational changes for people living with obesity.

"There is nothing that I can say needs improvement - from start to finish I have received amazing care and I cannot find one fault."

"Not only leading healthier lives, but much happier ones. The Verve team, and especially Mr Osborne, have totally changed my life for the better, in all sorts of ways that I had never imagined, since October 2022, and I cannot thank them enough."

"They ensure that you are making an informed choice at every step of the way. You feel like you are making the journey together."

"Available out of office hours for information and support when needed as well as encouraging and motivating."

"From the very get-go Verve were amazing. My initial consultation with Mr Osborne left me feeling so comfortable and at ease. I knew from then, should all go well I knew Alan would take great care of me."

"My appointments with Dafydd (Dietician) and Vanessa (Psychologist) were incredible. Again, I was immediately at ease, all my questions were answered. All of these appointments made me realise I'd made the right decisions in choosing Verve Health Group to support me on this journey.”
