Any dietary advice must be relevant to the individual patient. After all, eating is one of life’s pleasures, and changes should only be advised where there is known benefit. The suggested “Diet” is often more relaxed and varied than self-selected dietary regimes
Self-directed referrals can be made although, please do discuss any need for dietary advice with your Consultant or GP who can then refer you for a consultation. Especially if you wish to claim through an insurance policy.
The reception staff will be happy to make your appointment, usually within one week of referral.
Remember, dieticians are qualified to help. Many people ask to see a dietician for general advice because they are confused about what type of “healthy diet” they should be following.
Registered Dieticians are a trusted and reliable source of sound nutritional advice.
