If you have any problems with your diet you can ask your doctor at the hospital to refer you to a dietitian.
If you’re not in hospital, your GP may refer you to a community dietitian.
Qualified dietitians are experts in assessing the food needs of people who are ill. They can review your diet and take into account any specialist dietary requirements you may have. They can advise you on which foods are best for you, and also whether any food supplements would be helpful.
