Medway Community Healthcare (MCH) provides a wide range of high quality community health services for Medway residents; from health visitors and district nurses to speech and language therapists and out of hours urgent care.
Dietitians are the only nutrition professionals to be regulated by law and governed by an ethical code, to ensure that they always work to the highest standard. We hold regular outpatient clinics in Snapdragons and Rochester Healthy Living Centre and also at some of the Special Schools in Medway. We also support children and their families with advice over the phone and in parent workshops.
There is lots of different dietary and nutritional advice out there. However, Dietitians are the only qualified health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat diet and nutrition problems. We will assess your child’s current diet and give advice and support on ways to improve their nutritional intake based on their needs.
Your GP, Consultant, Health Visitor, School Nurse or other Health Professional may refer to us.
