What we do
Dietitians are qualified healthcare professionals who use nutrition science to help people make informed decisions about the food they eat and their lifestyle, both for promoting good health and improving symptoms of disease.
The Dietetic Service provides inpatient services to adults with a wide variety of nutritional needs at George Eliot Hospital, Warwick Hospital and Leamington Spa Hospital. We deliver evidence-based dietary advice to patients and their carers for many conditions, including the following:
As well as providing a service to inpatients, we also run numerous hospital-based outpatient clinics. Some of these clinics are run independently and some are run jointly as with multidisciplinary teams including diabetes and gastroenterology.
Our aim is to ensure that all our patients have a nutritionally healthy diet, that meets their individual needs and helps prevent disease.
As well as providing individualised patient advice, we also deliver group education sessions, training for professionals and have involvement in a number of health promotion projects.
