Community Nutrition & Dietetics Service: WH


Update: March 2023

Whittington Health Adult Community Nutrition & Dietetics is pleased to announce that they are accepting self-referrals for patients registered with a Haringey GP that meet the referral criteria. Please direct patients to the website (in Resources) to complete the online self-referral form.

The form needs to be fully completed with a clear dietetic reason to help reduce any delays/rejections, including height and current weight, as well as any relevant blood test/investigation results. Patients who are referred will be given the options to have either virtual or face-to-face consultations with a dietitian.

Whittington Health's (WH) Nutrition and Dietetics Service provides effective, evidence-based nutritional assessment, dietary advice and support to patients, their carers and staff involved in their care. The aim of the service is the prevention and/or treatment of nutrition-related conditions, helping local people live longer, healthier lives. 

A range of conditions are managed including obesity, diabetes, IBS and nutrition support.
