Nutrition and dietetics - Brent

The Nutrition and Dietetics service within Brent community services employ registered and experienced dietitians to treat nutrition related diseases in adults and children. 

Dietitians are qualified to degree standard and are registered with the Health and Care Professions Council. Nutrition has a key role in the prevention and treatment of disease. Dietitians aim to prevent or treat ill health by translating their expert knowledge of nutrition, using advanced behaviour change and motivational skills, into individualised practical dietary goals.

We work in a variety of specialist areas including:

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Malnutrition
  • Palliative care
  • Children’s health
  • Weight management
  • Health promotion and disease prevention (see information on Fit4Life programme)
  • HIV
  • Therapeutic diets e.g. gluten free diet for coeliac disease
  • Home enteral tube feeding
  • Adult mental health
  • Group education.

The service operates from four health centres across Brent from 9am – 5pm Monday to Friday. Housebound patients can be seen in their own home.
