Your nutrition and dietetics appointment


How do I get an appointment?

We take referrals from GPs, hospital consultants and other healthcare professionals.

Changing or cancelling your appointment

Phone the number in your appointment letter to change or cancel your appointment. Please do this as soon as you can.

If you cannot contact us by phone, please email

Before your appointment

Your appointment could be:

  • face to face
  • by telephone
  • a video call

Appointments take place in different parts of our hospitals and community sites. Our finding your way around page has maps of each hospital.

Your appointment letter will tell you:

  • the type of appointment
  • the location of your appointment
  • the name of the dietitian you are going to see
  • how to join your appointment if it is a video call
  • what you need to bring

What to expect at your appointment

Your appointment will be with a dietitian. Our dietitians are registered with the Health Care Professions Council (HCPC).

Your appointment might be with a trainee dietitian. They will tell you who they are. An experienced dietitian supervises our trainees.

How long your appointment takes depends on why we are seeing you.

After your appointment

We will send a letter and treatment plan to you and your GP.

We may also give you more information to help with nutrition and treat any related health problems.

We will arrange a follow-up appointment if needed.

You can contact your dietitian with any questions. If you do not have their contact information, please call us on 020 7188 2010.
