We are celebrating the work and expertise of our dietitians here at HRCH as part of Dietitians' Week 2017.
Our dietitians provide invaluable dietetic and nutritional advice to patients, carers and staff for the dietary management of disease and health promotion.
Nutrition and hydration is essential for ensuring good health - as well as for prevention, treatment and management of many diseases, including diabetes. Through providing dietary advice and support for patients with a range of conditions - our dietitians play a vital role in helping local people to stay healthy and well.
A dietitian is a degree-qualified health professional who helps to promote nutritional well-being, treat disease and prevent nutrition-related problems. They provide practical, safe advice, based on current scientific evidence.
Dietitians translate nutrition science into understandable, practical information about food, allowing people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices. They treat a range of medical conditions with dietary therapy, specially tailored to each individual.
