Nutrition during treatment

Experienced oncology dietitians help to ensure you maintain an optimal diet throughout your treatment.

About your diet during treatment

Dietitians are available across inpatient and outpatient treatment areas to assess and manage eating, drinking and nutritional concerns. Working to the latest evidence, our dietitians have in depth knowledge of a range of medical and surgical treatments and the methods to support nutritional status to optimise recovery. Our dietitians are highly skilled to manage tube feeds and intravenous nutrition (TPN) support as required.
Therapeutic diets can help to manage specific symptoms such as appetite changes, altered bowel habits, weight loss or gain, low electrolyte levels, high blood sugar levels, sore mouth or taste changes.
Post-treatment nutrition advice for wellbeing, strength, fitness and recovery is also available.
