Nutrition and dietetics
Dietitians are the only professionals working in nutrition and dietetics to be regulated by law and are therefore the most credible source of food and nutrition advice. Dietitians help to promote good nutrition, treat disease and prevent nutrition–related problems. They use the most up to date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease and translate this into practical advice to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices to improve their health.
Working with a close-knit team, the dietitian is able to refer to the other practitioners, doctors, podiatrist and physiotherapist when needed.
What is involved in the first consultation?
Your first appointment will be one hour to allow time for the dietitian to look in detail at what you eat, your activity and your lifestyle, and to assess the balance of your diet across all the important food groups. She will help you identify potential areas to change and support you in setting goals to improve your nutritional well-being. A personalised action plan will be developed for you and you will be offered follow-up sessions so that the dietitian can monitor and support your progress.
Our dietitian is registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC) and governed by an ethical code, ensuring they work to the highest standard and within an agreed statement of conduct.
