Welcome to Dietetics

The service is provided for adults with learning disabilities who live in Mid and North East Essex. The person should have an Essex GP. Children with a severe learning disability who live in North East Essex can also be seen.

A dietitian can also:

  • Help you to become more involved in your food choices

A dietitian will see you on your own or in a group.
