The diabetes dietitians cover three hospital sites (Heartlands, Good Hope and Solihull). We provide dietary advice to patients with Type 1, Type 2 and gestational diabetes (diabetes during pregnancy) . Our aim is to help patients improve their diabetes control and reduce the risk of long term complications.
We support consultant diabetology clinics, insulin pump therapy clinics, run patient education courses and group sessions. We also provide education and training to other health care professionals within the trust.
