What do we do?

We manage the nutritional care of all patients that do not have a Head & Neck or oesophagus and stomach cancer in an open access service in St Luke’s Cancer Centre and the TYAC Unit. Any healthcare professional in the centre can refer to us and we also accept self-referrals from patients. We aim to see patients at the same time as their clinic appointments to eliminate the need for them to attend at other times. We play an integral role in successful treatment delivery and recovery by recognising malnutrition, managing gastro-intestinal complications and maintaining nutritional status through dietetic counselling. The team will aim to address and correct nutrition issues as much as possible during treatment, and we provide advice on managing the side effects of treatments such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy and immunotherapies.

What do we do? 

We provide nutritional support to all patients with a Head and Neck Cancer diagnosis. This includes surgical, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, chemoradiotherapy and palliative care.  Once treatment and care is completed at the centre we ask our colleagues in the MARS team to provide ongoing care at consultant led clinics closer to the patient’s home.
