Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be statutorily regulated and governed by an ethical code. This ensures that they always work to the highest standard, and you can be certain that whatever advice a dietitian gives you is safe, reliable and fully evidence-based.
Dietitians use the most up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
Dietitians are able to assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition-related problems at an individual and wider public health level.

WHAT HAPPENS AT A CONSULTATION
One-to-one consultations provide the opportunity for you to discuss your health concerns with the dietitian. You will be asked about your current health and whether you take any medication. In addition, you will be asked about your meal pattern and food choices and how work, family and social activities may affect these. It is usual for your height and weight to be recorded.
After this assessment you will be involved in the construction of a realistic action plan, tailored to your specific needs.
