Your appointment letter will tell you:

During your appointment

Your appointment will be with a dietitian. Our dietitians are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Your appointment might be with a trainee dietitian. They will tell you who they are. An experienced dietitian supervises our trainees.

How long your appointment takes depends on why we are seeing you.

After your appointment

We will send a letter and treatment plan to you and your GP.

We may also give you more information to help with nutrition and treat any related health problems.

We will arrange a follow-up appointment if needed.

You can contact your dietitian with any questions. If you do not have their contact information, please contact us.
