Our Dietetics Department sees children and young people aged 0-16 who have conditions that require dietary management to maintain growth and improve their overall quality of life.

Dietary advice is tailored for each child based on their age, treatment and medical condition. This may include using specialist feed, dietary supplements or dietary restrictions.

We also provide support and monitoring for safe and effective home tube feeding and offer patients and families guidance at home over the telephone.

Accessing the service

We see patients in the hospital, in clinic and at other Trust sites.

Patients can be referred to our service by doctors in the hospital or from local GPs.
