About the clinic

Our dietitian also manages the support service for patients undergoing bariatric surgery, as well as running clinics for patients with a gastric band, or who suffer diseases of malabsorption. There are also specialist clinics for patients with diabetes, dyslipidaemia, irritable bowel syndrome, coeliac disease, and kidney disease.
