Update on weight loss medication for new and current Morelife patients from Cambridgeshire County Council and Peterborough County Council:

Please note that locally, we are currently awaiting an update on the funding and allocation for weight loss injections to be made available and the eligibility criteria for prescribing them. This means that weight loss injections cannot currently be prescribed for Morelife patients. This decision sits with the local Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS (Integrated Care Board, ICB), therefore if you have any concerns/complaints about the situation, please contact the local NHS patient experience team by emailing or phoning 0800 279 2535.

The weight loss medication will not be guaranteed for all service users. We encourage patients to engage with the Tier 2 and Tier 3 Weight Management services that we offer; which will be required alongside the medication when it becomes available.

We will continue to keep our patients updated as more information becomes available. For more information about WeGovy, please click here Accessing Wegovy for weight loss: Everything you need to know – Department of Health and Social Care Media Centre (
