The Paediatric Dietitians are qualified allied health care professionals that assess, diagnose and treat nutritional problems in children. A service is provided at Heartlands, Solihull and Good Hope Hospital which includes outpatient clinics and inpatients. We cover a wide range of specialities which include diabetes, cystic fibrosis, allergy, neonates, home enteral feeding, and weight management. We provide student training, education training sessions to other health care professionals and support groups for carers such as ‘TUFF’ tube feeding for families.
