Dietetics Advice & Guidance

From 5th October 2020 the Royal Cornwall Hospitals NHS Trust will be offering an Advice & Guidance Service on e-Referrals for Dietetic queries.

The Advice & Guidance Service has been established to offer advice on Dietetic queries when direct referral into secondary care may not be necessary.  The service will advise on management and treatment options for GP's to consider prior to referral where appropriate, with the aim of reducing the number of patients who need to be seen face to face.


If the patient is already under the care of one of the Dietitians, please detail this in the request.

Clinical responsibility remains with the GP until the patient is seen within secondary care.

All Advice & Guidance requests for this service must now be submitted through e-Referrals and replace the informal email service previously offered.
