Please note due to the continued recommended Government restrictions we are still unable to offer face to face appointments with the Dietitian.
Dietitians will undertake consultations via video using Attend Anywhere or telephone for patients referred to us. These will be at a pre booked time.
Please ensure we have your up to date email address and telephone contact details.
Patients still wishing to have a face to face appointment will be put on a waiting list and contacted when this is available – but please note we do not know when this will be.
