Nutrition and dietetics

Our services

The philosophy of the department of nutrition and dietetics is to establish and encourage good nutritional practice and standards as an integral part of the health care provided to the population served by Addenbrooke's Hospital.

Non-urgent advice: Information for patients

We run a variety of booked clinics for adults and children. In addition we run a telephone triage clinic for people referred for the dietary treatment of some gastroenterology conditions to ensure that you are seen in the most appropriate clinic. The department keeps some appointment slots free for emergencies. However, patients can be given these emergency appointments only if the department has received a request for an emergency referral from their hospital consultant, and the relevant outpatient clinic is in operation at that time. All emergency appointments are subject to review by a dietitian.
