Healthy Weight Resources – Consumer Insights

Health Consumers’ Council received funding from the WA Department of Health to connect and involve people impacted by overweight and obesity.

We have a number of documents available for people working within WA health services to contribute to improving health services in this area.

The information includes:

  • Consumer stories shared anonymously about people’s experience of their weight and using the health system for support
  • Consumer insights from these groups* – please email to request a copy. In your email, please outline your intended use of this information:
    • Children, young people and families
    • People from culturally and linguistically diverse communities
    • Aboriginal people
    • People with disability
    • Men
  • Insights about how consumers would like to discuss weight with health professionals
  • Learnings from our experience engaging with consumers on this topic

* Please note these insights are not exhaustive and in some cases come from small numbers of people. We share these in the hope that they add value to the evidence-based information on this topic.
