Our Services

Nutrition & Dietetics

Our service includes registered dietitians, assistant practitioners and dietetic assistants, with support from clerical staff. We work together to provide a quality nutrition and dietetics service to residents of Bolton in the acute hospital and community settings.

The service provides nutritional care to adults who need dietetic support based on their individual needs. We have a referral system which uses a detailed nutritional assessment so that we can direct patients to the right place, to see the right person, at the right time. The assessment may involve blood tests, a clinical assessment and analysis of diet history.

This allows us to give patients the best support and advice possible and work out a treatment plan to suit them. We may also refer patients to other services to complement their treatment.
