According to the NHS website, it is usually only recommended as a last resort for people who are morbidly obese (i.e. to qualify for the gastric band surgery the NHS demands a BMI requirement of over 40), or those with a BMI of between 30-40 who also have a condition that poses a serious health risk, such as diabetes, high blood pressure (hypertension), or heart disease may also be accepted as suitable candidates for an NHS gastric band.
They say that gastric banding is usually only available on the NHS if you meet specific criteria as set out by your local PCT:
You are aged 18 or over.
You have tried all other conventional methods of weight loss, such as exercise and diet, but have failed to lose any significant amount of weight.
You don’t have any medical or psychological reasons for not carrying out the procedure.
You understand the long-term commitment of having a gastric band fitted, for example you will continue to reduce your food intake and maintain a regular exercise regime maybe for life.
