Nutrition and dietetics

Dietitians help people make informed and practical decisions about food and lifestyle, offering advice in both health and disease. Dietitians are trained to at least degree level and have an expert knowledge of science, food and nutrition. They are skilled in translating this knowledge into every day terms.

The department is made up of dietitians, dietetic assistants and a clerical support team. We see patients with a variety of health needs and conditions, including:

  • Malnutrition
  • Weight management
  • Diabetes
  • Gastroenterology
  • Home enteral feeding
  • Oncology
  • Paediatrics
  • Renal

Please contact your GP or hospital consultant for a referral to the nutrition and dietetic service.
