Nutrition and dietetics

Nutrition and dietetic services provided by dietitians at Chelsea and Westminster hospital and West Middlesex hospital. We translate scientific information about food into practical dietary advice. As well as providing impartial advice about nutrition and health, dietitians also advise about food-related problems and treat disease and ill health.
