Your hospital stay may include a special diet or nutritional requirements. Our Allied Health Department provides you with access to a dietitian.
Dietitians are university-trained professionals who have completed an accredited degree in nutrition and dietetics.
You may need specific advice about nutrition related to or affecting the condition for which you were admitted. Our dietitians are able to consult on adult or paediatric nutrition. They can also discuss nutritional needs for when you return home, either with yourself or with your family or carer.
The hospital also supports specialist outpatient programs for people with diabetes or who have had gastric banding, however there are no general outpatient clinics.
