Nutrition and dietetics

 
All general practices across the borough of Harrow have a dietetic clinic service providing individual assessment and advice to patients with a range of conditions e.g. diabetes, raised cholesterol, obesity, irritable bowel syndrome, and malnutrition.

The services also provide:

  • Nutritional support and advice for patients, carers and staff in residential, nursing homes and patients at home
  • Home Enteral Nutrition (HEN) - facilitating a smooth transfer from hospital to home, and ensuring best care and support for patients who require tube feeding at home
  • Working closely with the Harrow STARRS (Short Term Assessment, Rehabilitation and Re-ablement Service) to provide nutritional care to patients at home
  • Health promotion, working alongside public health raising awareness of healthy diet and lifestyle in the prevention of nutrition - related conditions: diabetes, heart disease, stroke and obesity
  • Structured group education programmes for Type 2 diabetes, and heart disease.
