Dietetics - COVID-19 Information

Appointments -

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.

Home Enteral Nutrition -

If you are fed by a tube you can ring the Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN) Team for support and advice on 01202 711531. You can also email dhc.hen.east@nhs.net.

Video consultations may be arranged if appropriate. Home visits will not be carried out unless they are felt to be essential.

Support -

The British Dietetic Association has some useful information to help you manage your condition in the first instance. See https://www.bda.uk.com/food-health/food-facts

Dietitians in Somerset have agreed to share a series of webinars on a range of medical conditions that may provide an alternative to people who have had their routine appointments cancelled or postponed because of Covid-19
