Medication update: Wegovy now available in the UK

As of Monday, 4th September 2023, Novo Nordisk has made weight loss medication, Wegovy, available in the UK. Whilst production is scaled up, there is a “limited supply”, so demand is expected to be very high amongst private patients.

We are pleased to be able to offer Wegovy to Embla members and have now re-opened our screening booking system and invite you to secure a consultation with our medical team.

The Embla process


Our program is divided into 5 steps. Each section provides you with a series of tools that move you closer to the end goal; a long-term weight loss.
Stage 1

Focus on diet and habits

Our approach to the first 12 weeks involves intensively focusing on your eating habits, emphasising whole foods and nutritional education. This sits alongside the kick-start that comes from using your prescribed weight loss medication, which mimics satiety hormones and prevents hunger. Alongside this focus on nutrition, we will also introduce manageable changes like daily walks and stair use and offer you personalised exercise guidance to build enjoyable routines.
Stage 2

Focus on activity

As your energy levels increase, we look at physical activity, adapting to your preferences and experience to ensure a personalised and effective exercise strategy. While individualised, we do recommend 30 minutes per day of moderate exercise. Alongside this focus on activity, we will also evaluate the medication's effectiveness and adjust your dosage accordingly, as well as continue with a balanced nutritional approach incorporating all foods without any restrictions.
Stage 3

Community and the Social Aspect

Research highlights the significance of help and support from social networks in sustaining weight loss. We encourage you to engage with other members of our community groups. We find that sharing experiences and being open to other perspectives helps members feel inspired and more likely to overcome any obstacles. Your coach will continue to guide you with enjoyable and suitable physical activity, and your medication dosage will be adjusted if necessary.
Stage 4

Automate your habits and begin tapering off your medication

Embla's medication-assisted approach typically leads to significant weight loss, but from the outset, we plan for your life beyond medication. The decision to taper off the medication or extend its use is personalised and discussed with your medical team. As you taper off the medication, your habits and routines built throughout the program remain, and the ongoing support will give you the confidence to maintain your progress independently.
Stage 5

Embla Embrace - maintenance

Transitioning off the medication marks the start of the crucial maintenance phase. You can now use all the tools you have learned over the program and the coach-advised strategies to maintain your changes. Without medication, you can reflect on satiety, energy, and sleep to ensure your continued progress. Support from your coach and the Embla community, alongside continued physical activity, will help you sustain your weight loss.
