Next Episode of Weight Loss Ward is
This documentary series is filmed from Sunderland's Royal Hospital, where its specialist ward for the morbidly obese treats patients who are seeking surgery to battle their weight gain.Focusing on one of the busiest NHS obesity units in the UK, Weight Loss Ward follows the personal stories of the patients, their journeys to losing weight, possible reasons behind their weight gain, the reality of gastric surgery and its consequences.The series also gives a unique insight into the challenges faced by the ward's 50 specialist hospital staff in getting patients to lose weight, to keep it off, and the tasks they face in performing surgery on them.
In episode one we meet 30-year-old Terry Gardner, who previously featured in the programme having ballooned to 47 stone and being forced to sleep downstairs in his house due to his weight. At that point, he had split up with wife Leanne but now the couple are back together and Terry, the heaviest patient on the ward, is determined to lose weight for the sake of his two children.
Tonight we meet 56-year-old Doreen Thomas, who is 4 ft 11in and 31 stone. She turned to the Weight Loss Ward for help because even leaving her house is a problem and she's been living and sleeping downstairs for ten months. Doreen's got her date to go to the weight loss ward for a week's observation so the team can assess her eating patterns.
In the final episode of this series 56-year-old Doreen Thomas, who is 4 ft 11in and weighed 31 stone at her heaviest, is admitted to the ward. Virtually housebound, Doreen sleeps in her living room where she shops online. But since coming on to the ward, she's been put on a strict diet of three normal-sized meals a day - with no snacks.
