Support Resources Information Education
Healthily’s new 1800 Dietitian service is more than just phone consultations.
In October this year, Healthily launched a new telephone-based service for dietitian consultations. The service is referral based and all consultations are delivered by qualified, DAA accredited practising dietitians. It provides people with a convenient phone-based service they can access at a time and place that suits them.
It has been designed for people to access after they have left hospital, who may not be able to easily access dietitians in hospitals and other clinical settings and for those who have restricted mobility or find travelling difficult.
We have assembled a wonderful team of qualified dietitians who have long-standing experience in clinical areas that include;
- cardiac and stroke
- nutrition for the elderly
We believe this service can help supplement the important work done by dietitians in our hospitals and communities. By providing fresh options for patients who want to access healthy lifestyle resources and up-to-date nutritional information from home, we hope to increase access to dietetic health care around the country.
