The Why Weight? For Tomorrow team in Shropshire used Flo to support patients in their weight management whilst under the care of the weight management team. A menu of protocols were developed to map requirements of both the team and the patient that varied in terms of frequency for weight reading prompting.


The presence of a nurse in the team also allowed support to patients with associated co-morbidites to be offered as clinically appropriate. Additional protocols that incorporated blood pressure and blood oxygen checks at varying intervals were developed resulting in the identification and opportunity for the subsequent management of hypertension as described in the case study.
