Gastro Dietetic Team

Dietitians provide evidence based, practical advice about food & nutrition. People with Gastrointestinal (GI) conditions will benefit from this advice to help them manage their condition and to help reduce the risks of long-term health complications.  Examples include:

  • Coeliac disease
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Colitis
  • Diverticular disease
  • Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
  • Bile acid malabsorption

How can I arrange a referral to the dietitian?

Your GP or doctor you are seeing at the hospital can refer you to see a dietitian. Once we receive this referral, you will be sent a letter via post giving you an appointment date, time and location.

Where are clinics held?

Your appointment letter will confirm the location of your appointment.

Our 1:1 clinic appointments are held at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, in Outpatients 3.

Please use the machines to check in for your appointment in Outpatients 3 and then take a seat.

If you have IBS, you may require advice on a low FODMAP diet and be invited to one of our FODMAP group sessions.  These are held in the Education Centre at the Royal Surrey County Hospital on a Wednesday morning.

What should I bring to my appointment?

If you are attending a 1:1 clinic appointment, please bring a record of what you have eaten and drunk over the last few days.  A three day food diary should have been included with your appointment letter, which you can use if you wish. It is also useful to bring a list of any medications or supplements you are taking.

What do I need to do to cancel or reschedule my appointment?

Please contact the department as soon as possible. This can be by telephone or email.
