Dietary support at The Hospital Group

Following weight loss surgery it is important to maintain a balanced diet.

To achieve results with weight loss surgery it requires your commitment to changing aspects of your lifestyle. That is to say, maintaining a balanced diet afterwards is vitally important to helping you achieve your weight loss goals which is where our team of expert dietitians come in – who can offer specialist support that’s specifically tailored to patients who have undergone gastric band, bypass or sleeve surgery.

Following weight loss surgery, it’s important to eat a nutritious diet that takes into account the changes to your body to ensure that you are getting all the vitamins and minerals that you need. Our bariatric dietitians can assist you with making the right food choices and advise on how best to eat and digest food now that your portion sizes are smaller. 

We offer face-to-face dietitian appointments as well as convenient telephone consultations. To find out more, get in touch with weight loss support today.

Reasons to see a dietitian

A dietitian can help you make changes to your dietary habits and support you in your weight loss journey. 

Our highly experienced bariatric dietitians are fully qualified to provide nutritional guidance and support, assessing your individual needs and medical conditions you may have.

Perhaps you’re struggling to lose weight or maintain your figure following weight loss, or maybe a medical condition is making it difficult to achieve the healthy lifestyle you’re working towards. Our dietitians can advise and support you in reaching a healthy weight that you’re happy with and guide you through the entire weight loss journey.

Even if you’ve not had your weight loss surgery yet, it is essential to see a dietitian before the actual procedure. Procedures like a gastric band, gastric bypass or sleeve gastrectomy reduce the size and capacity of the stomach and can affect your absorption of certain vitamins and minerals, which means your physical and dietary requirements will change

Depending on your current weight, it’s likely you will need to follow a pre-operative diet for a few days or weeks before surgery can take place - our dietitians will advise you on the best course of action to prepare for weight loss surgery.

With us, you have access to experienced dietitians who can help you decide whether weight loss surgery is right for you. After surgery, our dietitians will be on hand to provide all the expert support you’ll need to make the necessary changes to your diet.

Our dietitians are experienced nutritional experts, committed to helping you achieve a healthier, happier lifestyle with the right dietary advice.

Who are dietitians regulated and quality assured by?

Dietitians are regulated by the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), which keeps a current register of health professionals who meet its high standards. As a statutory body, the HCPC can take action against anyone registered who falls short of these standards.

Registered dietitians are required to keep their skills up to date through compulsory continuing professional development. The HCPC can investigate reports of below-standard treatment or concerns surrounding a dietitian’s health or behaviour.

What can you expect from dietitians?

Our dietitians specialise in the science of nutrition and how what we eat affects our health - the right nutrition can improve our wellbeing, treat medical conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular disease and coeliac disease, and more. Dietitians use their expertise to assess individual diets, identify problems and help bring about improvements.

Appointments with dietitians take the form of practical advice, which is given directly to patients, depending the circumstances. Dietitians use evidence-based approaches and can supply or administer some types of prescription medication.
