Providing support for Coeliac' patients

10 Dec 2012 15:23:47


Rotherham Nutrition and Dietetic Services (RNDS) at The Rotherham NHS Foundation Trust have been helping to support Rotherham patients on a gluten free diet. More than 120 Coeliac' patients (those intolerant to gluten) recently attended an event ran by the department at the Carlton park Hotel, Rotherham.

This is the second year that the Trust has staged such as event with the aim to make the patients of Rotherham aware of the variety of products and companies that can provide gluten free products.

Twenty local and national companies showcased their gluten free products and there were TRFT nutrition specialists from areas including diabetes and paediatrics on hand to advise patients throughout the day as well as cooking demonstrations and a chance to sample the food. Coeliac UK also attended the event to give patients support and advice.

Following on from the success of the Enteral Feed and Supplements Dietetic Prescribing (April 2006), the Trust’s Nutrition and Dietetic Services took over the prescribing responsibility for Gluten Free Foods and Specialist Dietetic Products in September 2010. They are the first in the country to take over the responsibility of prescribing dietetic products from the GP thus giving the patients of Rotherham specialist dietetic advice before prescribing.

The department plans to hold future events in 2013. If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us. For queries regarding Nutrition and Dietetic Prescribing in Rotherham contact Katharine Phillips (Dietetic Prescribing Co-ordinator) 01709 427079.
