Some individuals will be expected to monitor parameters such as blood sugar testing and blood pressure readings on a frequent basis and report back to the medical team. This enables the medical team to provide the best care. Failure to do so may result in adverse effects, for example hypoglycaemia (low blood sugars) and hypotension (low blood pressure) as well as possible side-effects from other medications. Any ill-health resulting from a failure to provide the medical team with relevant information will not be the responsibility of the medical team. The medical team are only accountable for managing health conditions directly related to the clinic (Metabolic Syndrome).

Days/ hours of operation

The clinic will be run over 2 sessions a week. The timing of these sessions may vary but notification will be given on the website with prior warning.
