Adult Dietetics Team

The Adult Acute Dietetics team at the James Paget University Hospital is a small team of 10 individuals when fully staffed.

The team is made up of dietitians, dietetic assistant practitioners, dietetic assistants and a dietetic secretary. The dietetics team cover all of the adult inpatient wards, which includes providing speciality dietetic input to areas such as Intensive Care, Gastroenterology, Surgery, Renal, Stroke, Orthopaedic, Care of the Elderly, Oncology and Respiratory.

If you are interested in careers within the dietetics team please get in touch and we can discuss any available or upcoming opportunities.

In addition to the clinical workload, the dietetics team are involved with education throughout the trust including training delivered to newly qualified nurses, ward staff, junior doctors and other allied health professionals. In addition to the education sessions that we provide, we are also able to welcome student dietitians from the University of Hertfordshire and the University of East Anglia to our team throughout the year.



The dietetics team at the James Paget University Hospital accept referrals from consultants and health care professionals within the hospital. The dietetics team at the James Paget do not accept referrals from GP’s, district nurses or self-referral.

Once a referral has been received and accepted by the dietetics team you will be added to the waiting list and an appointment will be arranged as soon as possible.

Please note that referrals to specialist dietetic areas may have a longer waiting time than routine referrals.
