Nutrition and Dietetics

The service offers a number of different options for care, depending on individual patient need.  The service has a successful dietary advice service with robust clinical governance and audit leading to a high quality service.

There are one-to-one dietetic clinics each week in a range of locations across the borough of Croydon to help patients manage their dietary needs.

Our team provides advice and expertise to a wide range of inpatient and outpatient services including, diabetes, cardiology, renal, critical care, gastroenterology, neurology, stroke, elderly care, nutrition support and home enteral feeding, obesity, cancer, paediatrics, learning disability, inflammatory bowel diseases and maternity.

The department provides a service to all wards within Croydon University Hospital.  Dietetic input aims to prevent and correct or control nutrition related symptoms and/or disease.

Dietetic staff work closely with other leading centres of care including Kings College Hospital and St George’s Hospital, drawing on the support and expertise of a wider network.  This gives Croydon patients access to the very best care that the NHS can offer.

Paediatrics

The paediatric dietetic team provides an inpatient service to the children’s Rupert Bear Ward and the Special Care Baby Unit, in addition to outpatient clinics including specialist services for diabetes, food allergy, special needs, autism, ADHD and home enteral feeding.

General paediatric dietetic clinics offer assessment and advice for children with a wide spectrum of nutritional issues, including obesity, malnutrition, fussy eating, nutritional deficiencies and other dietary concerns.
