If you have any other health related problems that could be improved through dietetic support eg IBS, coeliac disease, a specific micro nutrient deficiency or other condition, the Occupational Health service or yourself will be able to refer you into the dietetic staff clinic.

How to access the staff Dietetic Service

Staff can self refer into any of the group programmes or into the staff clinic by completing the referral form or by contacting the dietetic department by email, phone or letter to register interest. See contact details below.

The Occupational Health nurses and Physiotherapists can also complete a referral form for you.
