Service overview

UHB have received new fixed term funding to support cancer pathways. As part of this project they have set up a new dietetic clinic based at South Bristol Community Hospital and is open to any patient with a cancer diagnosis.

Do you have a patient with a cancer diagnosis and do they report...

Weight loss or a poor appetite?

Weight gain associated with their treatment?

Difficulties eating when gastrointestinal symptoms or fatigue and tiredness are a problem?

Wanting to know more about healthy eating during or after cancer treatment?

Dietary changes required as a result of operations or procedures?

Anxieties or worries related to nutrition as a result of cancer?
