Dietitians for Rehabilitation
Whether you have recently been discharged from hospital or are recovering from surgery or an accident, nutrition plays a vital role in your recovery.
Optimising your protein and micronutrient intake can have a profound impact on how quickly your body heals and the time it will take for you to get back to your usual self.
The team at City Dietitians are highly experience in supporting patients to rehabilitate from medical conditions, including in the management of artificial feeding (nasogastric or PEG feeding) and oral nutrition support.
Optimising Recovery After Illness or Hospitalisation
During any period of illness or hospitalisation, our bodies go through a huge amount of stress. It is likely that there will have been periods where your nutrition wasn’t at its best and as a result, your body will have tapped into stored nutrients which can become deficient when you need them for your recovery.
Many patients feel frail and weak after hospitalisation and this can hamper their ability to participate in physiotherapy and other rehab activities. Nutrition is key to ensuring you can get back to your usual self as quickly as possible and recover fully from your period of illness or hospitalisation.
If required, we can contact your GP or consultant for tests or investigations.

What to Expect From Your Rehabilitation Consultation
One of our expert dietitians will take time to thoroughly understand your medical/surgical history and will assess your current diet or nutritional regimen. Your dietitian will calculate your nutritional needs at each stage of your recovery and provide a structured plan to ensure they are met through diet and/or supplementation.
We usually recommend booking a six appointment package for rehabilitation to ensure you are supported at every stage. Our six appointment package is £510, which gives you six appointments for the price of five, saving you £90. If you prefer a pay-as-you-go option, this is also available.
