GLP-1 / GIP medications:
a transformative opportunity 
for the NHS

The opportunity

The new class of weight loss medications – semaglutide / Wegovy and tirzepatide / Mounjaro – offer a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for the NHS to reverse the spiralling cost of obesity (currently estimated at over £6.1bn) and to significantly reduce pressure on the system. 

 

Studies, such as the STEP and SURMOUNT clinical trials, have shown startling weight loss of up to 15%-25% over 18 months for Wegovy and Mounjaro respectively. 

 

As well as directly helping those living with obesity, sustainable weight loss at this level can also improve health outcomes or reduce demand in other pathways:


The challenge

NICE approval for Wegovy, and most probably for Mounjaro too, is for use in patients with a BMI of 35+ and a co-morbidity, supported by a tier-3 weight loss service.

 

Currently, over 4,000,000 people in England meet this criteria, but there are only 40,000 Tier 3 places available and no new budget has been assigned for the current financial year.  Real world evidence as to the effectiveness of GLP-1/GIP medications being delivered in NHS pathways is lacking, as is evidence around patient adherence.

 

CheqUp and the NHS: helping square this circle

CheqUp is one of only seven companies that has been approved by NICE (HTE14) to provide digitally enabled weight services to the NHS.

 

CheqUp’s remotely-delivered full Tier 3 service is fully flexible, cost-effective, sustainable and helps address health inequalities. We are actively exploring opportunities to undertake pilot projects, in obesity and other pathways, so as to establish RWE and build best practice.

 

In addition to the NICE approval, CheqUp is CQC and ORCHA registered, DTAC accredited and Cyber Essentials approved.
