Nutrition and dietetics service

Specialist Dietitians working within the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics are responsible for assessing the nutritional needs and requirements of all inpatients at The Walton Centre and on the Neurorehabilitation Unit.

The aim of nutritional therapy is to enable patients to optimise their nutritional status during acute episodes of illness and to support the rehabilitation process.

The Dietitians work closely with patients, relatives and carers to formulate appropriate dietary interventions that specifically address the needs and requirements of the individual. Close collaboration with other departments and healthcare professionals ensures that nutritional therapies and treatments are also supported by key members of the multi-disciplinary team.

The Department of Nutrition and Dietetics works to maintain the highest professional standards and utilises current and emerging research evidence to support the delivery of specialist dietetic services for the neurosciences. Our mission is to continue to support the delivery of high quality, safe nutritional practice as an integral part of the healthcare provided at The Walton Centre.
