Community Dietetics

The Community Dietetics service at MKUH is a team consisting of four registered dietitians, one dietetic assistant, one nutrition assistant and various administration staff. We are a part of the Milton Keynes University Hospital Dietetics Department.

Who do we see?

The Community Dietetics team see the following people in their own homes, care homes, hospices and respite facilities who are registered with a Milton Keynes GP:

  • Any adult with a feeding tube in place (except Adults with a Learning Disability)
  • An adult with mobility problems who cannot attend a clinic appointment at MKUH
  • Any adult in a care home (apart from weight management)
  • We also see people in the following settings as part of service level agreements:
  • Windsor Intermediate Care Unit (WICU)
  • The neuro rehabilitation unit
  • The Older Persons Assessment Service (TOPAS)
  • Chadwick Lodge
  • Campbell Centre
  • Marlborough House

Milton Keynes University Hospital dietitians do not provide a weight management service. This is commissioned by MK Council Public Health Department and referrals should be directed to www.whyweightmk.co.uk.
