Our referral procedure

In accordance with our professional code of practice, a referral letter from your doctor is normally required.

You can print the referral form and take it to your doctor for completion.

If you are unsure as to whether you require a referral, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Booking an appointment

Please contact us directly. We aim to see all patients as quickly as possible. Urgent cases are prioritised.

Pre-consultation information

To assist us in the 1st consultation most patients are asked to complete a food diary for the three days (including at least one day over the weekend) immediately preceding the appointment date.

The Food Diary can be downloaded now or can be sent to you by e-mail on confirmation of your appointment time.

What to expect at your first consultation

  1. You will be advised by one of our registered and qualified dietitians.
  2. If your consultation is by telephone or video conference, we may need you to provide us with your weight and height measurements. We may also ask for other measurements to be taken or for blood test results to be forwarded prior to the appointment.
  3. The consultation duration is normally 50 - 60 minutes.
  4. During the consultation, your health issues will be discussed, nutritional goals set and any follow-up requirements planned.

Further review appointments

A follow-up appointment is normally 20 - 30 minutes depending on your medical condition.

Completeness of care

In the case of a referral, a letter summarising the goals or issues discussed, where appropriate, will be sent to the referring physician with your permission.
