Registered Dietitians are the only legally qualified health professionals trained to enable assessment, diagnosis and treatment of diet and nutrition-related problems. Dietitians utilise the most up to date scientific research on food, health and disease, both to offer personalised advice and to develop practical guidance to help people make the most appropriate lifestyle and food choices, both in health and disease.
Dietitians are regulated by law and have an ethical code of conduct similar to doctors. This means that you, as patients/clients, are protected and can be assured that you will get the latest credible evidence-based information.

Dietitian appointments are available at Parkside Hospital Wimbledon, the New Victoria Hospital Kingston-Upon-Thames and The New Malden Diagnostic Centre, New Malden.
Our Dietitians have access to your medical notes and so can tailor a nutrition plan to your medical treatment and investigations. First appointments last around 1 hour to allow sufficient time to discuss your issue in depth and carry out a full nutrition assessment. You will be asked to complete a food and symptom diary prior to your appointment to help both you and your dietitian gain a comprehensive overview of your nutrition lifestyle. Following your appointment, a report of the consultation will be sent to your Consultant and GP. You will also be provided with supporting literature to help with the treatment plan. Follow-up appointments take 30 minutes and are usually offered at 4 weeks.
