Community Paediatric Dietetic Service

This specialist service is provided by a paediatric dietitian that works two days per week. The service accepts referrals from GP’s for children and young people with a wide range of special dietary needs and uses up to date knowledge and evidence- based practice to support them to ensure expected growth and development.

The Dietitian is able to offer practical guidance to help children and their families make appropriate food and lifestyle choices and manage dietary changes, whether following an exclusion diet (e.g. for coeliac disease or allergy), or trying to expand the range of a fussy eater.
