Are you considering a career as a Dietitian?

deitician 2

There are exciting career opportunities in the field of dietetics and nutrition, and the dietitians at Basildon University Hospital are hosting an event to encourage more people to join their profession.

Anyone interested is welcome to come and meet the team at an open morning being held at the hospital on Wednesday 30th October from 9.15am to 1.30pm. They will offer advice on degree courses in dietetics and provide an insight into their work in both hospital and the community, with adults and children. Guest will also have the opportunity to take part in workshops on topics such as food labelling and body composition, and ask the team questions.

Hannah Butterfield, dietitian, said: “Nutrition and dietetics play a vital role in the management of patients to improve their outcomes. Dietitians are able to assess, diagnose and treat nutritional problems and work closely with the medical team and therapist to provide the best care for patients. The job is very rewarding and you are able to build great relationships with your patients, we want to raise awareness of dietetics as a career opportunity.”
