What does a dietician do?

The dietician can provide individualised dietary information for our patients. This can help you:

  • Manage your diet better
  • Reduce the chance of developing other health problems.
  • Improve your knowledge and confidence
  • Set a dietary plan or goals with you.

They will also review your progress.

Please note: you must be 18 or older to work with the dietician.
