Nutrition and Dietetics: BelfastBelfast Health and Social Care Trust - Carlisle Wellbeing and Treatment Centre
Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up to date public health & scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
In hospital patients are referred to the Nutrition and Dietetic service by Medical or Nursing Staff for dietary assessment and advice according to nutritional need. In the community referrals are accepted from a GP or onward referral from the Hospital.
