Dietetics

About Us

Dietitians are HCPC registered Allied Health Professionals (AHPs) that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level. Dietitians interpret the science of nutrition to improve health and treat diseases and conditions by educating and giving practical advice to clients, patients, carers and colleagues. Their advice influences food and health policy across the spectrum from government to local communities and individuals. Dietitians often work as integral members of multi-disciplinary teams to treat complex clinical conditions.
