Departments: Clinical Nutrition & Dietetics

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.
