Info for Health Professionals

Registered Dietitians (RDs) are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems at an individual and wider public health level. Uniquely, dietitians use the most up to date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease, which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.

I am working as a freelance dietitian at Kingston Health Centre, initially one morning per week. I accept referrals from all health professionals, as well as self referrals. Fees are in line with the British Dietetic Association recommendations (£80 for initial consultation, follow ups £45).

I am registered with:

  • Aviva Health – provider number 600079743
  • Axa PPP Healthcare – reference number SD03010
  • PruHealth
  • Cigna

About me:

  • BSc Physiology (University of Bristol), MSc Nutrition & Dietetics (University of Ulster)
  • 12 years post registration experience in the NHS and private sector
  • HCPC and British Dietetic Association registered
  • I have broad experience in adults and paediatrics
  • Dietetic posts include:
    • St George’s Hospital, London – rotational post: cardiac care, renal, nutrition support, gastroenterology, care of the elderly
    • Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, London – rotational post: HIV, bariatric surgery, general paediatrics
    • SHS Nutricia: Metabolic Specialist
    • Richmond & Twickenham PCT: Children with Special Needs
    • Guy’s & St Thomas’ Hospital, London: Clinical Lead for Adult Inherited Metabolic Service

I appreciate the shortage of NHS Dietitians available in both the hospital and community settings. I aim to provide a private dietetic service, which may help to bridge this gap for your patients.

Patient groups who may be appropriate for you to refer:

  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome low FODMAP diet
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome NICE guidelines
  • Coeliac Disease
  • Cardiovascular Disease
  • Weight loss
  • Weight gain
