The College is proud to be a founding member of the Scottish Obesity Alliance, a forum for organisations to collaborate to influence policy and practice on obesity prevention in Scotland. It is composed of leading national health charities, medical royal colleges, campaign groups and professional bodies with an interest in health and public health. The Alliance works together to influence the Scottish and UK Governments policies on healthy weight and obesity.

This is a critical time to come together to shape policy on obesity prevention. 2 in 3 adults are either overweight or obese in Scotland, and 26% of children aged 2 to 5 years old are at risk of being overweight including 13% who are at risk of being obese.
