NHS England and NHS Improvement will be investing £3 million in 2021/22, and a further £6 million in 2022/23 to mobilise 15 new Tier 3 clinics for children and young people. These services will provide holistic support to manage complications from severe obesity. This is in addition to £4 million allocated in 2021/22 to support the expansion of adult specialist weight management services and bariatric surgeries, including working with integrated care systems to map the existing provision of services.
