Patients and Visitors
All our Dietitians are registered (RDs) and are uniquely qualified to translate scientific information about food into practical dietary advice. As well as providing impartial advice about nutrition and health, dietitians also advise about food related problems and treat disease and ill health.
The dietitian working for head and neck cancer is a specialist in this area and can support you during your treatment.
In line with recommendations from the National Institute for Clinical Excellence (NICE) guidelines, dietitians are core members of the head and neck cancer multidisciplinary team.
Patients can be referred to the head and neck cancer dietitian via any member of the multidisciplinary head and neck cancer team.
The title dietitian can only be used by those appropriately trained professionals who have registered with the Health Professions Council and whose details are on the HPC web site.
