Dietetics and Nutrition

Where can you find a Dietitian?

Dietitians work in the NHS, private practice, industry, education, research, sport, media, public relations, publishing, non-government organisations (NGOs) and government. Their advice influences food and health policy across the spectrum from government, local communities and individuals.

What does a Dietitian do?

Dietitians can assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level. We use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, and translate this into practical guidance to enable you to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

Dietitians have a wide range of knowledge and specialise in topics including: Diabetes, Food Allergies, Obesity, Mental Health, Paediatrics, Enteral Nutrition, Oncology, Malnourishment and many more.

How to prepare for your appointment

If you received a food diary template or your Dietitian requested you keep a record of your oral intake, try to complete these as accurately as you can and bring them to your appointment. These will help us develop the best treatment plan possible for you.
