Who should see a dietitian?

Anyone can benefit from receiving personalised dietary advice from a dietitian. 

Your doctor may recommend seeing a dietitian for your health condition, as good nutrition can have a big impact on managing symptoms.

What should you expect?

We offer expert advice to help you make changes to improve your long term health and wellbeing.
 
Your dietitian will complete a thorough individual assessment of your nutritional needs and develop a personalised eating plan that takes your medical conditions and personal circumstances into consideration. 

We then work closely with you to find options which are practical, achievable and suited to your eating habits and lifestyle. Nutrition counselling will help you to make dietary changes.  

Your dietitian may speak to your GP with your permission to get an overall view of your health and wellbeing.

Review sessions are usually planned at regular intervals to see how you are going and provide additional advice and support.
