Welcome to the nutrition and dietetic service. We provide nutritional advice and care for individuals with a wide range of medical conditions.
We offer individual appointments for nutritional assessment and advice which takes account of your medical condition and personal preferences.
We offer appointments in a range of community health clinics across Tameside and Glossop and can see individuals who are housebound in their own home.
Patients who are in Tameside General Hospital as an inpatient can be referred to a dietitian during their stay.
We also offer a tube feeding service for patients at home.
Our team includes state registered dietitians and a nutritional nurse.
We use our expert knowledge of medical conditions and nutrition to assess and advise you on the best diet to meet your needs.
We have experts in the following areas:
If you are registered with a Tameside and Glossop GP you can request a referral from any health professional. We offer our service to all age groups - babies, children and adults.
We offer appointments in a range of clinics on different days. Once you have booked your appointment you will be sent a letter confirming the date, location and length of the appointment. If you have any special needs such as an interpreter we can arrange this for you.
If you are housebound the dietitian will contact you to arrange to visit you at home.
You will be asked to report to the clinic reception when you arrive. We will discuss the reason for your referral and ask you about your current diet so we can offer you the advice and treatment that best meets your needs.
During your visit it will be agreed whether further appointments are needed.
If a further appointment has been agreed you will receive a letter at the relevant time. Following your visit we will write to your Doctor.
