Summary NICE issued guidance on the prevention, identification, assessment and management of overweight and obesity in adults and children in 2006 (CG43). This was a joint clinical and public health guideline developed by the National Collaborating Centre for Primary Care (now merged as part of the National Clinical Guidelines Centre) and NICE's Centre for Public Health Excellence. Despite the guidance, there remain significant variations in existing service provision for people with obesity and, in many places, the multicomponent programmes that are required for both prevention and treatment are limited. The 2013 Royal College of Physicians report "Action on obesity: comprehensive care for all" reported that access to surgery for obesity in some areas of the UK did not reflect the guideline recommendations. The 2006 guideline was reviewed for update in 2011, leading to this partial update. This guideline addresses 3 main areas - follow-up care packages after bariatric surgery; the role of bariatric surgery in the management of recent-onset type 2 diabetes; very-low-calorie diets including their effectiveness, safety and effective management strategies for maintaining weight loss after such diets.
