About us

The department comprises of dietitians, dietetic assistants, a nutrition support nurse and administration team. 

 

Registered Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level.  All dietitians are registered and regulated by the Health and Care Professionals Council (HCPC).

 

Dietitians 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 (British Dietetic Association (BDA)).
