Face masks and social distancing: Due to the rising prevalence of COVID-19 in our communities, we strongly encourage healthcare staff and visitors to wear a face covering in all of our settings, particularly in clinical areas and those with high footfall. Please exercise a common-sense approach and personal responsibility to help us reduce the impact of COVID-19 on our patients, workforce and services. In addition to wearing a face covering, it is important to continue to maintain social distancing where possible. Thank you for your continued support and co-operation at this time. We continue to regularly review our advice based on prevalence in our communities and our hospitals.

Nutrition And Dietetic Service

Nutrition plays a key role in the prevention and treatment of a wide-range of health conditions.  Our department works with hospital patients, the wider general public, other health professionals and organisations to promote nutritional health and wellbeing.

Our team consists of dietitians, nutrition nurses, nutritionists and support staff with a broad range of experience and clinical expertise.  We are able to assess and treat the dietary issues of children and adults in health and disease. We organise and manage artificial nutrition support for patients when needed in the hospital and in the community.

Our staff work as part of multi-professional teams to provide hospital and community based services including outpatient consultations, ward work, education and training of staff and patients.  We provide group education programmes for chronic conditions such as diabetes, cardiac rehabilitation, weight management and our Nutrition Skills for Life team work within public health initiatives to promote healthy eating in our local population.

Choosing the right person to seek help and advice from can sometimes be a confusing task. Many people claim to be experts in nutrition yet have very limited knowledge and offer no protection to the public.

Dietitians are qualified and regulated health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level.

They use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
