MWBC Dietician Information

A dietetic clinic is run weekly, on a Thursday morning in the Macmillan Wellbeing Centre. This offers the opportunity for people to self-refer, or to be professionally referred for 1:1 nutritional support from a Specialist Macmillan Dietician. Referrals are accepted at any stage following a cancer diagnosis.

Frequently addressed nutritional concerns include:

  • Coping with a poor appetite or intake
  • Difficulty maintaining a healthy weight
  • Achieving a nutritionally adequate diet whilst experiencing treatment related side-effects and symptoms
  • Texture modified diets due to swallowing difficulty
  • Healthy eating following a cancer diagnosis
  • Making dietary changes following surgery to the gastrointestinal tract
