We use our knowledge of food and nutrition to prevent and treat symptoms of diet and nutrition related problems. We help motivate people to make positive changes with food choices.

We provide support and advice for a range of nutritional, gastrointestinal and feeding problems.

Some of the reasons you may be referred to our team are:

  • Malnutrition ?Undernutrition(underweight)
  • Dietary advice for gut problems (e.g. constipation, irritable bowel syndrome)
  • Therapeutic diets e.g. gluten-free
  • Nutritional deficiencies

  • Obesity (limited to a co-morbidity requiring dietary treatment)
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Diabetes with controlled glucose/sugar levels

To ensure the best standard and continuity of care, we work closely with GP’s, community nurses and other health care professionals.

We also provide support and training for other health care professionals and community workers.  This increases knowledge and skills, and ensures consistency in the provision of evidence-based information about food and nutrition.
