Healthy Eating

healthy eating

 

At our Trust we believe passionately in healthy eating and offer healthy choices to patients, vistors and staff through our restaurants and inpatient catering.

All our patient meals are carefully planned by dieticians and our catering staff have introduced a series of measures to reduce the levels of salt in food. We have also introduced protected mealtimes for patents who may need help and support with eating and drinking as well as producing meals for a variety of special diets.

Weight management

Dietitians are experts in translating scientific information about food and nutrition into practical dietary advice for a range of health conditions.

Our teams of dietitians work with patients, healthcare staff and the general public to promote optimum nutrition for health. We also have a specialist weight management team.
