Nutrition and Dietetics

If you’re struggling to manage your weight or are suffering from malnutrition, we can provide you with the advice and support you need.

We work with patients at Royal Berkshire Hospital and in the wider community.

We can help you in the following ways:

  • Individual consultations for both adults and children to assess, treat and educate you on therapeutic diets (see criteria forms to the right)
  • Advice if you’re living in a residential home and are at risk of malnutrition (in special cases, we also see people in their own homes)
  • Supporting people who are receiving artificial nutrition at home to minimise complications and keep them out of hospital
  • Running ‘Weight Off Your Mind’ weight management sessions in the community
  • Providing nutrition education for patients, carers and other health professionals

A healthy weight can be checked by calculating Body Mass Index (BMI).

If you’re Caucasian and have a BMI of more than 30kg/m2 or you’re Asian with a BMI of more than 27.5, we can offer you a place on our ‘Weight Off Your Mind’ course.

Weight Off Your Mind Course

Our six month programme can help you lose weight and includes a number of dietetic, psychological and exercise tools to do it safely.

To join our course, you’ll need to be referred by your healthcare professional.

People who are at risk of malnutrition are at a higher risk of infections, falls, poor wound healing and other complications.

We use your Body Mass Index and any recent unplanned weight loss to assess your level of risk (also known as the ‘Malnutrition Universal Screening Tool’ or MUST) and create a care plan that’s right for you.
