Our specialist dietitians are here to help you achieve your nutritional needs and goals

Dietetics is the study of food and nutrition. Dietitians use the study of dietetics to help support your health and wellbeing through healthy, balanced eating. At Circle Health Group, specially trained dietitians are available to take a look at your current food and nutrition intake and recommend ways to improve this according to your specific needs.

We also work with other specialists who can offer dietary consultations, including endocrinologists, gastroenterologists, and general practitioners.

You might be recommended to a dietitian because you are living with a condition such as diabetes or heart disease and your doctor thinks nutritional changes could support your other treatment. You might consult a dietitian to help you lose weight in a safe and sustainable way. Or, you might want to boost your nutrition in order to support your overall health.

If you would like to find out more about our diet and nutrition services, call or book online for a consultation with one of our experienced specialists.

The cost of seeing a dietetics consultant or specialist will depend on a variety of factors, including which hospital and which consultant you choose, as well as how long you need their support for. Call today to speak to our advisors and get a tailored quote.

Our flexible payment options help you spread the cost of your payment across a time period that suits you. We offer fixed-term monthly payment plans over one to five years with no deposit required. If you decide to pay over 10 months, you will pay interest-free. If you are paying for a longer period, you will pay 14.9% APR.

If you have private health insurance, nutritional support may be covered by your provider. Speak to your insurer directly to find out.

Dietitians help promote good health through proper eating. They supervise the preparation and service of food, develop modified diets, participate in research, and educate individuals and groups on good nutritional habits.

Diet and nutrition can play a part in supporting a wide variety of health concerns. You might be given a specific nutrition plan by a dietitian if:

  • For medical reasons, you are unable to consume food normally, for example if you need a feeding tube
  • You are experiencing disordered eating and need advice on how to eat healthily
  • You are obese and would like to lose weight healthily
  • You have a condition such as diabetes or heart disease, where treatment can be supported by dietary changes
  • You have a food allergy or intolerance or a gastrointestinal condition that means you need to avoid certain foods or food groups
  • You are an athlete and want to achieve optimum nutrition to support your training

A dietitian can help you put together a diet plan that provides all the nutrients you need to feel as healthy as possible, as well as giving you instructions on how to obtain, prepare and serve the foods they recommend.

Clinical dietitians work in our Circle Health Group hospitals to provide nutrition therapy to patients according to their health requirements. They create individual dietary consultations for patients and their family members and also give educational sessions on how a better diet can improve a person's health. Dietitians create bespoke, tailor-made eating plans for patients using both their medical records and an understanding of their personal nutritional needs.

Many chronic illnesses have been linked to poor nutrition. Ensuring that we get the nutrients we need to feel well physically, mentally and emotionally is an important step towards better health.

Using modern research and knowledge from your dietitian, you can support your body to better health through a personalised healthy eating plan. Often, seemingly small changes to diet and lifestyle can bring significant health improvements.

At Circle Health Group, our dietitians recognise that each person is an individual with unique requirements and take time to define a personalised nutrition plan, rather than a 'one size fits all' approach.

Our experienced dietitians can help treat symptoms of many conditions. These include:

  • Constipation
  • Diarrhoea
  • Indigestion
  • High cholesterol
  • Allergies
  • Eating disorders
  • Certain psychological disorders
  • Irritable bowel syndrome
  • Acne and other skin problems
  • Asthma
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating

Your dietetic specialist will advise you on how better health and nutrition can relieve or eliminate symptoms during your appointment.

At Circle Health Group, our dietetic specialists are here to help you improve your life through healthy and bespoke nutritional plans.

If you are having treatment for a particular condition, your dietitian will review your medical charts to understand your nutritional requirements. They'll want to get to know you and your circumstances, so they'll ask lots of questions, taking a detailed medical history as well as asking about your interests and aims, and what you hope to get out of your dietary changes. They may also wish to talk with your family too. They will work with other healthcare professionals, such as gastroenterologists and oncologists, to provide you with a nutritional programme and advice to benefit your health, taking into consideration your age and any health conditions you may have.

After getting to know you and your specific nutritional and medical requirements, your dietitian will put together a bespoke nutritional plan to meet your individual needs.

When you choose to go private with Circle Health Group, you can expect:

  • Flexible appointment times to fit your schedule
  • The freedom to choose your hospital and your consultant
  • Bespoke, consultant-led treatment plans tailored to your individual needs
  • Affordable, fixed-price packages with no hidden costs
  • Flexible payment options to help spread the cost of your care
