A Dietitian, or Clinical Nutritionist, is a Health
Professional who is qualified to give accurate advice and
information on all aspects of nutrition and diet. All Clinical
Nutritionists have a scientific and medical background that
enables them to give nutritional advice that is specific
to the person.
The Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics Department at the
Bon Secours Hospital, Cork is staffed by a team of three
Clinical Nutritionists. We have an Inpatient service and
an Outpatient service. We are all members of the Irish Nutrition & Dietetic
Institute (INDI). The INDI is the professional body for Dieticians,
or Clinical Nutritionists in Ireland since 1968.
