Service description

Our dietitians advise on both general healthy eating for people of different ages, and also nutrition in specific situations such as malnutrition and nutritional deficiencies, overweight, diabetes, cancer, Coeliac disease, heart disease, and allergies or food intolerances.

Dietitians work in close liaison with other health professionals including doctors, nurses, pharmacists and speech and language therapists. We also work with education, social services and other agencies.

If you need to see a dietitian, your GP can arrange a referral to our services.

We also accept self referrals from people wishing to join one of our weight management groups. Self referrals (for these groups only) can be made by phone on 0116 222 7154.
