PrivateDoc among exclusive providers of "revolutionary" weight loss drug Mounjaro as it launches in UK
"Pivotal" moment for UK healthcare will kick-start people's weight loss journey, as PrivateDoc announces comprehensive weight loss package
Digital healthcare platform PrivateDoc has been named among a select group of UK providers of Mounjaro – the weight loss medication that has launched in the UK today (Friday 26th January).
Mounjaro (tirzepatide), is a once-weekly non-insulin injection for adults, manufactured by Eli Lilly, that has been available as a prescription in the US since 2022.
PrivateDoc, which has a heritage and track-record in providing clinically-proven weight loss packages for those looking to begin and sustain their weight loss journeys, is adding Mounjaro to its comprehensive weight loss packages that champion the responsible use of prescription medication to complement people's weight loss journeys.
"Mounjaro is a revolutionary product that has achieved great success internationally, and is the safest, breakthrough weight loss medication available on the market"
PrivateDoc CEO, Wais Shaifta, said: "We're proud to be one of the exclusive UK providers of Mounjaro, entrusted by Eli Lilly to take one of the market's leading weight loss medications to market in the UK, in what is a pivotal moment for UK healthcare. It's a revolutionary product that has achieved great success internationally, and is the safest, breakthrough weight loss medication available on the market. Going forwards, it will act as a part of our comprehensive weight loss packages, alongside diet, exercise and wellness support."
PrivateDoc's Chief Medical Officer, Dr Ruchira Karunadasa, added: "From our clinical expertise and track record of helping people across the UK with our weight loss programmes, we are adamant that weight loss is a sustained journey people need to go on. While Mounjaro shouldn't be seen as a quick fix, it is a proven method which with clinical guidance and a healthy lifestyle can be a game changer. We want our customers to know we are here for all their weight loss needs, and look forward to helping them achieve their weight loss goals."
