Our aim is to provide consistent dietetic and nutritional advice to patients, carers and staff for the dietary management of disease and in the promotion of health.
Our department is made up of a team of dietitians, a nutrition practitioner, a dietetic assistant and an administrator.
Dietitians are uniquely qualified in knowing about food and how it affects the body, both in health and disease. All dietitians have to be registered with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) in order to practice in the NHS.
Our working hours are from 8am to 4.30pm, from Monday to Friday (outside these times, a message can be left on our answering machine on the number below).
