Expert nutrition services by accredited practising dietitians are available to all staff and students through the University Health Service.
As expert dietitians, we understand that managing your diet can sometimes be difficult and there is no one-size-fits-all approach. We take your personal preferences and lifestyle into account, and work with you to find how we can best help you to optimise your health. We have a strong focus on helping you achieve your own goals and give you the tools and skills to continue in the long term.
We can provide you with advice on a range of conditions, including (but not limited to):
- coeliac disease
- depression/mental health
- diabetes (types 1 and 2, pre-diabetes, gestational diabetes)
- family nutrition
- food allergies
- food intolerances

- heart disease
- hyperlipidaemia (high cholesterol)
- hypertension (high blood pressure)
- lack of energy
