Nutrition is about the right food to keep your body healthy.

Our Nutritional Services give people help with getting the right food for their medical condition.

This page gives you information about:

  • How to contact us

We offer a comprehensive range of nutritional services including full enteral and parenteral (TPN) support services.

There are two nutrition nurses in the trust, a nurse consultant in nutrition and a clinical nurse specialist in nutrition. Both nurses cover the Royal Liverpool & Broadgreen Hospitals. In addition to this they provide a service to the patients requiring enteral nutrition via gastrostomy/jejunostomy tubes at Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital.

The nutrition nurses are part of a larger hospital nutrition team consisting of two consultants, senior dietitian, a team of middle grade doctors (specialist registrars in Clinical Chemistry) and a senior pharmacist. The trust also has a Nutrition Group and Nutrition Steering Committee.
