The Children's Dietetic Team
Our highly skilled team of paediatric dietitians work closely with clinicians and multidisciplinary teams in many specialties within the children's unit, advising on therapeutic diets or nutritional support for in-patients. They also attend multidisciplinary clinics with specialist teams and run busy dietetic-led outpatient clinics for a range of conditions, accepting referrals from local GPs and consultants at UHNM, for children and young people at the Royal Stoke and County Hospitals. Our aim is to provide patient-centred holistic care.
Our team is made up of a dedicated dietetic assistant and 11 paediatric dietitians, some of whom are nationally renowned for the work they do within their specialist areas, contributing to nutrition publications and national guidelines.
Specialist areas include Neonatology, Gastroenterology, Parenteral Nutrition, Home Enteral Feeding, Children's Intensive Care Unit (CICU), Eating Disorders, Diabetes, Prader Willi, and Cancer and Cystic Fibrosis. UHNM is a regional centre for Cystic Fibrosis.
