Nutrition and dietetics - Surgery

The dietetic service provides nutritional advice for patients who have had various forms of surgery. It is very important that this group of patients has adequate nutrition to ensure effective wound healing as well as overcome symptoms limiting oral intake or nutrient absorption.

The dietitian provides enteral nutrition support advice (orally or via tube feeding) tailored to each patient to ensure that they meet their nutritional requirements.
