Do I need to manually add my GP address to sign up?
No, on our referral form the box for ‘name or number’ is for you home address (where you would like your vouchers sent and the address we will have on file for you)
My GP surgery isn’t coming up on the drop down
Some surgeries are partnered or grouped with others and may have changed  their name. For example if your surgery is called ‘Long Hanborough medical practice’ but it is grouped with ‘Eynsham medical practice’ as their main site then you would need to enter Eynsham Medical Practice into the box. Some GP surgeries may also be registered under a different name to what you know it as, try entering the road name and number into the GP search. For example 207 London road for Bury Knowle surgery which you may know as Hedena Health.

Why do duplicate vouchers take so long to arrive 
When we order duplicate vouchers we have to get them from the Slimming World or WW head office. The head office then send them to our office in Oxford and then we can send them out to you. We know this sounds quite complicated however don’t worry, we will get your duplicate voucher to you. Just double check your address you provided to us is correct and sit tight until they come in the post. In some cases we can provide the voucher number directly to you or your group leader if need be, just give us a ring on 01865 338119
