    Dear Slimming Clinic Team,
    I am interested to hear more about this role. I am a GP Partner with over 10 years of experience. I am currently the lead managing GP and GP lead for Diabetes. Through my interest in diabetes I have developed experience with helping patients with weight loss and have up-skilled in lifestyle medicine with the British Society of Lifestyle Medicine diploma.
    I am looking to diversify my career as a GP and wonder what role a GP would play in these clinics?
    Many thanks,
    Best wishes,
    Dr Ellen Fallows
