What is Dietetics?

Dietetics is the science of diet and nutrition in both health and disease.  Dietitians practically apply nutrition into everyday information about food to promote well-being, prevent nutrition-related problems and dietary treat disease.

We offer outpatient clinics with a Registered Dietitian to assess your nutritional status, control symptoms and improve your well-being.  The service is available as a service in its own right or for patients as an integrated part of their overall care and treatment for other conditions.  Our dietitian will discuss your goals and agree a dietetic treatment plan with you.
