Overview

Supporting children who have a condition for which nutrition aids treatment. We provide a complete service of assessment, dietary management, and monitoring. 

The Dietetics department at Great Ormond Street Hospital works with children and their families who have a condition for which nutrition and special diets can be used as treatment. 

We assess children carefully, to identify the most appropriate dietary management. Then we develop a treatment plan and explain it to the patient and their parent, providing advice on how to carry out the plan at home. We then monitor the child's growth and development, to ensure that the prescribed diet meets their needs. 

Dieticians are available to see children as outpatients in Caterpillar outpatients.
