The Clinical Nutritionist uses her or his knowledge of food, nutrition, and science to promote health, prevent disease and aid in the management of illnesses. Clinical Nutritionists assess the nutritional status of patients, calculate individual nutritional requirements, design a plan of care to meet these nutritional requirements and educate patients and families on therapeutic and health promoting diets or nutrition support.

Outpatient services are located in the Main Hospital in Suite 3 of the Outpatient Department (OPD), in the Diabetes Day Centre (DDC) and GUIDe clinics in Hospital 5 and the multidisciplinary room, GEMS Outpatients Route 2. The location of your appointment will be on your appointment card.
Patients who are unable to attend an outpatient appointment with the clinical nutritionist / dietitian are asked to contact the department secretary at least 48 hours in advance to cancel or reschedule. This will allow other people waiting for an appointment to access our service. If you do not attend your appointment a further appointment will not automatically be sent out. You should contact the department secretary if you need to arrange any further appointments.
All patients referred to the Department of Clinical Nutrition must be under the care of a St James’s Hospital consultant. Referrals are accepted from St James’s medical, nursing and multidisciplinary team staff.
