The Herts Family Dietitian aims to make you feel safe and supported throughout your experience with us.
What You Can Expect
Book an appointment by calling or emailing. I will get back to you as soon as possible, so please leave a message if there is no answer. Alternatively, book online directly in the booking page.
Your GP or other health care professionals may be contacted prior to or after consultations. This is to provide the highest level of care for you, the client. This will be done only with your knowledge and consent.
The initial clinic consultation lasts for one hour. It involves taking a detailed medical and nutritional history, and to talk through what you wish to achieve. Body measurements are taken when needed / requested. We will then create a fully personalised plan to get you started.
Payment can be made by cash or card on the day of your appointment. Receipts can be provided if requested.
What We Ask
For Dietetic Consultations
I require you to complete a form prior to your first appointment, with space to write down your medical history and any other relevant information. I may also ask you to fill in a 3 day food diary prior to your first appointment to assist with dietary analysis and assessment.
Please bring all relevant medical test results and any records such as ‘the red book’ with you to your appointment.
For certain conditions, it may be useful to bring with you a brief written summary of your symptoms, in date order, to aid the consultation process.
If you are running late, the session will still end at the agreed time.
Results and outcomes following your appointments, will be reliant on dietary and non-dietary factors. Therefore, no guarantee can be given of results.
If you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment, please do so as soon as possible. If you cancel or reschedule your appointment within 6 hours, there is a fee of £25. If you do not attend an appointment without prior notice, the fee is charged at full appointment price.
Please note; should the dietitian need to cancel, a full refund will be made, but no compensation for your incurred costs such as travel will be reimbursed. The Dietitian will let you know as soon as possible.
I will always maintain your confidentiality. I use the encrypted communication platform ‘WriteUpp’ to keep your personal information, clinical notes and any other information secure.
I work in a fully integrated manner with other health professionals and NHS staff. I am GDPR compliant and will not share your information without your knowledge and consent.
I am a full member of British Dietetic Association (BDA) and their paediatric specialist group.
I am registered with the Health & Care Professions Council (HCPC), registration number - DT29466
As a clinical professional it is my statutory duty to follow up any safe guarding concerns.
