What is a Dietitian?

Share This Post

Dietitians are qualified and legally regulated nutrition professionals.  

We are governed by the Health and Care Professions Council’s ethical code which ensures we always work to the highest standard and in the best interest of our clients.

We are experts in the complex science of food and nutrition.  Their role is to assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional related problems using the most up-to-date scientific evidence.  

We work in a broad spectrum of positions; the NHS, the media, private practice, industry, education, sport and public relations to translate the science into practical guidance.

Could you benefit from seeing a dietitian?

If you have a long-term health condition a Dietitian can support and guide you to make healthy lifestyle changes to benefit your health. 

If you’re fed up of ‘yo-yo dieting’ and want to lose weight safely and effectively then a Dietitian will empower you to make small lifestyle changes with lasting results. 

If you have lost weight due to illness a Dietitian can suggest ways to re-nourish you. 

They can help with tummy problems such as IBS, food allergies and intolerances or provide support with feeding babies and children. 

You may just need some healthy eating guidance and a Dietitian can assess your nutritional needs for each stage of life. 

Whatever your need, whether it be simple or complex, you can ‘Trust a Dietitian to know about Nutrition’.
