After completing my degree in Nutrition and Dietetics in 2004, I spent the first two years of my career providing dietetic cover to a range of medical, surgical and elderly care wards at the University Hospital of North Staffordshire NHS Trust. I also ran clinics in GP practices, providing individually tailored plans to improve the nutritional status of patients with a variety of conditions including heart disease, cancer, IBS and coeliac disease. It was from 2006 I had the opportunity to develop the dietetic service at the local mental health hospital; it was here I first gained experience supporting adults with a variety of eating disorders. Alongside this work I provided dietetic cover to a variety of high dependency and critical care units including the neurosurgery and cardiothoracic high dependency unit as well as the oncology unit. In 2012 I joined Newbridge House, a specialist hospital providing treatment for children and young people with a range of eating disorders. As the Lead Dietitian, I provide evidence-based education with the aim of supporting individuals in their journey to improve their quality of life. By helping them make small, step by step changes, they can develop a more positive relationship with food.
