Dietitians Do Prevention

Dietitians Do Prevention


We’re proud to be supporting Dietitians Week (4 - 8 June).


Our dietitians do fantastic work with people across Wirral to prevent illness and optimise health. They provide expert advice about nutrition, how the body uses nutrients and the relationship between nutrition, health and disease.


Dietitians Week 2018 is all about prevention and our dietitians strive to maintain, improve or maximise the health of individuals, groups and families to treat illness and prevent nutrition related problems.


Did you know…

  • Diet and nutrition can play a key role in both preventing and managing mental ill health. Good nutrition and hydration can also help aid recovery and prevent relapse.
  • Our dietitians provide support and advice for people who have been unwell eg after an operation or having a stroke. This type of support can provide symptom relief, reduce risks of further illness and prevent readmission to hospital.
  • Good nutrition and hydration is fundamental to good health. Our team helps people to stay healthy and prevent illness and diet related conditions such as malnutrition or obesity.
  • Our dietitians provide support for people with long-term health conditions, like diabetes or dementia. Diabetes Smart is a free course to help and support people with pre-diabetes and type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Find out more about our course here 
  • Living a healthy lifestyle is important and our Weight Management Service offers a more flexible approach to achieving this.  However, our dietitians don’t just provide support and advice around diet and nutrition. They also discuss related issues that can impact on your health like exercise, smoking and social factors and where appropriate will signpost people to further help for these non-dietary issues.
