Dietetics and Nutrition

Meet the Dietitians

Over the past few months we have welcomed two new members of staff to the dietetic team – Rebecca Dodd-Chandler – LVAD Dietitian and Gemma Naidoo – Heart Transplant Dietitian.

Weekly dietetic clinics run alongside your routine appointments.

We offer advice and support on:

  • Healthy eating
  • Nutrition for those with a reduced appetite / unintentional weight loss
  • Weight management advice
  • Fluid management
  • Diabetes
  • Raised cholesterol

If you would like to make an appointment, please phone the Transplant Unit on 0161 291 2200.

Appointments are available on a Tuesday, Wednesday and alternate Thursday mornings.  Appointments are available on Fridays.
