Dietetic service

A clinical dietician provides a dietetic service to patients referred by a hospital doctor, in both the acute setting in the Mid-Western Regional Hospital and also in the rehabilitation and continuing care setting at St Camillus Hospital. On receipt of a written referral by a hospital doctor, an individual will be seen by the dietician as an in-patient or as an out-patient, as relevant at that time.

Access to services

Dieticians based at the Mid Western Regional Hospital review patients from:

Monday to Friday from 8.30am to 5pm.

A dietician attends St Camillus Hospital for two sessions per week and is also accessible by telephone when not on site, to staff and paitents, who have previously been seen.

Out patients:

Once a month an outpatient clinic is held at St Camillus, by appointment only – referrals via medical day hospital at St Camillus Hospital or direct referral from a consultant or member of their team.
