​Preparing for your appointment

Inpatient services

If you have been referred to our service, a dietitian will complete an assessment on the ward and provide advice as necessary to you, your carers and health care staff.

Outpatient appointment

At your appointment, the Dietitian may request information on your usual dietary intake, weight history, medical history and current medications. The Dietitian may also wish to weigh and / or measure you. If you have mobility issues, please inform the Dietitian prior to your appointment as specialist equipment may be required.

The following would be useful to bring to the appointment:

A 3 day food / symptom (if applicable) diary

A list of any medications which you are currently taking

You may wish for a family member / friend / carer to accompany you to your appointment, especially if you do not do much cooking or shopping for food.
