Community nutrition and dietetic service (Barnsley)
The community nutrition and dietetic department can assist service users requiring nutrition support as well as those with a range of conditions such as gastrointestinal disorders, food allergy, and intolerance. The department also provides specialist services for diabetes, home enteral feeding, mental health and learning disabilities.
The service is available to both adults and children of all ages and includes inpatient areas (, Neurological Rehabilitation Unit and the Stroke Rehabilitation Units) as well as clinical locations throughout Barnsley. The service also offers care at home for patients who are unable to attend a clinic.
During a consultation with a dietitian, service users can expect to be weighed and height measured. A full dietary assessment will also be undertaken; with written and verbal advice provided as a result.
Training can also be provided to service users, their carers and other health professionals regarding a wide range of dietary issues.
