Pregnancy can be a high-risk time for weight gain. However, the postnatal period may present an opportunity to offer weight management support. PIMMS -WL was a NIHR funded randomised controlled cluster trial investigating the feasibility and acceptability of a brief weight management intervention for postnatal women embedded within the national child immunisation programme.

This seminar will start by presenting the results of PIMMS -WL. The remainder of the seminar will focus on the long-term management of patients after bariatric surgery. The multiple health benefits of bariatric surgery are well established. However, in the longer term patients can become vulnerable to procedure specific problems, which can have long term consequences. Issues and research around the management of patients who have had bariatric surgery will be discussed.

This talk is part of the MRC Epidemiology and CEDAR Seminars series.
