I would imagine so, if not I would ring the midwife and see if she could leave a signed letter for you at the surgery, All health proffessionals should be encouraging a healthy diet so there shouldn't be a problem. You can still follow the diet whilst you wait;)

well i was never asked to get a letter or sign anything when i joined sw. all the literature says you have to but there was never an official form. what they would never do is tell me what my weight loss goals should be or advise me on what to lose but i got weighed and stayed to the group and things.
