Nutrition and Dietetic Service

Registered dietitians help people to make informed and practical choices about food and lifestyle to maintain health and combat disease.  They undertake the practical application of nutrition with individuals, population groups and the general public to promote wellbeing and prevent nutrition related problems.

Dietitians work in partnership with patients, carers and health professionals in acute hospitals, community hospitals, outpatient clinics, GP surgeries, care homes and patients’ homes.  They are involved in the diagnosis and dietary treatment of disease and work with adults and children who require special diets as part of their medical treatment, for example:

  • diabetes
  • eating disorders
  • irritable bowel syndrome
  • kidney disease
  • food allergy and intolerance
  • malnutrition

The Enhanced Care Diabetes Service offers dietary advice and support on weight management for people with diabetes.

Dietitians also develop and implement guidelines and policies and provide training and education to health professionals to ensure evidence based practice.

Patients can be referred by their GP or any other health professional.
