Nutrition and Dietetic Service

Our team consists of qualified Dietitians and Dietetic Assistants along with our administration support team.  All of our Dietitians are registered with the national regulatory body, The Health and Care Professions Council.

What do we do?

The Nutrition and Dietetics department offers patient assessment, diagnosis, care planning, treatment and health education services from children to adults, seen across community and hospital settings across County Durham and Darlington.

We provide a dedicated tube feeding service to all patients who cannot eat or drink to meet their nutrition and hydration requirements.

How can you access our services?

Individuals may be referred to the Nutrition and Dietetic Service by other health care practitioners such as your GP. All referrals are prioritised so that we can deal with urgent cases first. For healthcare professionals wishing to refer a patient click here.

How did we do?

If you have recently used the Nutrition & Dietetic service please tell us about your experience using the Friends and Family Test. We use your feedback to recognise the good or to help make improvements where needed.

The Friends and Family Test (FFT) is an important feedback tool that supports the fundamental principle that people who use NHS services should have the opportunity to provide feedback on their experience. Listening to the views of patients and staff helps identify what is working well, what can be improved and how. We really appreciate your feedback.
