Dr Lockie's Practice Support Group

Our support group provides the opportunity for patients who are about to undergo or have undergone weight loss surgery to discuss their concerns which enhances a patient’s weight loss outcomes.  Guest speakers present at the patient support group on a regular basis.

More details on each session will be provided closer to the event.

Bariatric Virtual Q and A

We periodically run these Zoom sessions on topics of interest to our patients. This is an opportunity to ask your unanswered bariatric related questions of Dr Lockie and other specialists from the comfort of your home.

Of course you don't have to ask questions yourself, but just listen in, if you like.

Attendance can be secured by clicking on the personalised link sent to our mailing list prior to each event.

Ready To Launch  (formerly Just START Exercise)

Every four weeks or so Dr Lockie's Practice, in association with Paul Peglar (Exercise Physiologist) and staff, run this exercise education and practical session on specific topics of interest to our patients. These sessions are helping to break down the barriers to physical activity for attendees.

Please note that these sessions are now held at the START Training exercise facility at 35 Babarra St, Stafford.
