Who we are
The Nutrition and Dietetic services include community dietitians, home enteral feeding dietitians, dietetic assistants, dietetic assistant practitioners and specialist diabetes dietitians.
What we do
Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and governed by an ethical code, to ensure that they always work to the highest standard.
A dietitian is a degree qualified health professional who:
- Helps to promote nutritional wellbeing, by aiming to prevent, assess, diagnose and treat nutrition related problems
- Provides practical, safe advice, based on current scientific evidence to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and dietary choices.
The aim of the community Dietetic Team is to provide a comprehensive dietetic service that meets the health care needs of the local community. This involves developing and promoting effective clinical services to provide treatment to a range of medical conditions which can benefit from intervention.
We can provide individualised advice on a number of nutritional health related concerns, including nutrition support, weight management, diabetes and irritable bowel syndrome (IBS).
