The Oesophago-gastric dietetic team support patients with disorders to the oesophagus and stomach through their surgery and treatment.
We aim to ensure patients are able to maintain their nutritional status despite their symptoms and that treatment options and outcomes are not impacted by any nutritional deficits or excesses.
Once you are under the care of the oesophago-gastric team a referral can be made to our service through your consultant.
Our appointments are held in various clinics at the Royal Surrey County Hospital, including Outpatients 3, 4 and 12 (St Luke’s Cancer Centre). The location will depend on where your consultant or nurse appointments are held.
A 3 day food record diary can be helpful for your dietitian to assess your food intake.
We will know if your consultant appointment is cancelled or rescheduled, so you do not need to contact us.
There is a dietetic service to all the wards in the hospital. If you are admitted and need support from the dietitian, your doctor or nurse can refer you to us.
