Nutrition and Dietetics Department (James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust)

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics exists to provide consistent dietetic and nutritional advice to staff, patients and carers for the dietary management of disease and the promotion of health using evidence based information or best practice guidelines. A Registered Dietitian is a graduate, trained to give advice about nutrition and diet. This can vary from giving advice on specific therapeutic diets to health promotion and training. One of the main roles of a Dietitian is to assess an individual’s diet, taking into consideration any medical or social factors influencing their intake and requirements. Following a dietary assessment, the Dietitian will recommend dietary modifications to help the individual meet their nutritional requirements. A range of information leaflets are available for diets relating to specific medical conditions can be obtained from your GP surgery.
