The nutrition and dietetic services within the foundation trust provides services to patients within both primary and secondary care.
We work to help people to make appropriate dietary changes and to translate the complex and often confusing science of nutrition into simple food choices. This can involve one to one patient consultation, group education or working to help plan public health strategy.
We work with people who need dietary change to prevent or manage a particular disease and also with individuals, groups and communities to raise awareness of the links between nutrition and health, and help them to make positive changes in food choices.
When someone is unwell and admitted to hospital we seek to ensure that the food they are provided with is nutritionally adequate by working with catering and nursing colleagues on menu planning and food provision issues. Dietitians are also available to provide advice to patients needing specific dietary change as part of their treatment on medical referral. We would also be involved if a patient was failing to meet their nutritional needs or had dietary requirements that could not be met via the normal catering systems.
