General Oncology Dietetic Dietitians: Lindsey Allan, Tanya Klopper, Adele Hug & Alice Extance
What do we do?: We manage the nutritional care of all patients that do not have a Head & Neck, oesophagus, stomach or haemato-oncology cancer in an open access service in St Luke’s Cancer Centre. Any healthcare professional in the centre can refer to us and we also accept self-referrals from patients. We aim to see patients at the same time as their clinic appointments to eliminate the need for them to attend at other times. We play an integral role in successful treatment delivery and recovery by recognising malnutrition, managing gastro-intestinal complications and maintaining nutritional adequacy through dietetic counselling. The team will aim to address and correct nutrition issues as much as possible during treatment, and we provide advice on managing the side effects of treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapies.
How to contact us?: If you would like to self-refer to the dietitian then please call the Department of Nutrition and Dietetics on 01483 464119, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
