The Learning Disabilities Dietitians work within the Multi-Disciplinary team to provide support for adults living with Learning Disabilities and training and help for their carers.
We accept referrals for conditions where making changes to diet can improve health and quality of life.
Most of the people seen by us tend to be either very overweight or very underweight.
The Learning Disabilities Dietitians are based in Swindon but receive referrals for people with Learning Disabilities from Swindon and East Wiltshire.
People with learning disabilities who require tube feeding will be seen by the Home-Enteral Nutrition Dietitian (please see Tube feeding nutrition).
