Nutrition and dietetics

The nutrition and dietetic department provides a dedicated service to the population of Medway and Swale.

Our registered Dietitians provide practical, evidence based dietary advice to the inpatients at Medway NHS Foundation Trust. Within the acute setting we cover a range of specialist areas including elderly care, gastroenterology, stroke, surgery, acute medicine, orthopaedics, oncology and critical care. We work alongside our catering department to provide optimum nutrition for patients.

We have close links with our community colleagues for outpatient follow up and ongoing care.

If you or a relative are an inpatient and feel you would benefit from dietetic input, please speak to the nurse in charge and they can refer you to our service.
