How long does it take to get a gastric band on the NHS?

The weight loss surgery waiting time on NHS varies from clinic to clinic and depends on the number of people applying for the surgery. Whereas in one place patients can have the surgery soon, in other places they need to wait over a year. Usually, however, it is several months of waiting. Patients usually get a phone call from the clinic about 2 months before the surgery with the information about the surgery date. Some patients are treated as a priority (e.g. if their lives are seriously endangered), and then the waiting time extends. It is best to contact the clinic that would be the patient’s preferable place to get a gastric band and ask what the waiting time is.
