Nutrition and Dietetics

Our Nutrition and Dietetics Department is based at Hillingdon Hospital. There is a small office at Mount Vernon Hospital to serve our wards and outpatients there. Our dietitians are experts in improving health and well-being, through evidence-based nutrition. We are happy to undertake private work so long as payment is assured e.g. from your health insurance.

Our staff

We have 9 dietitians with two administrators to deal with general enquiries and outpatient appointments. Dietitians provide a service to wards and clinics depending on their area of specialty, such as paediatrics, mental health, eating disorders, intensive care, diabetes, nutrition support and the Tudor Centre.

The Dietetic Manager is responsible for managing the service. If you have any concerns or queries, she will be happy to discuss them with you. Her contact number is 01895 279416.

Student placements are offered for half the year for those reaching the end of their training. Patients may therefore be seen by a student dietitian whilst being closely monitored; this is an essential part of their training.

Investors in People standard

The department is proud to have attained the Investors in People (IiP) standard for the last 6 years. Last assessed in 2010, the standard is valid for 3 years. IiP helps improve performance by assessing staff attributes such as management, training, objectives, team working, commitment to service, staff moral and performance review plans.
