The world's first Dietitians Week (9-13 June 2014), led by the British Dietetic Association (BDA) aimed to highlight the importance of dietitians and the role they play with patients nutrition as part of their care in hospitals and in the community.

Marking the week Ashford and St Peter's held stands in the main reception at both hospital sites with information regarding the Trusts development of its dietitian services, and also launched our new bedside information folder for patients. These detail what we offer to inpatients - including the weekly menus, special diets, such as gluten free, modified textures and those for patients with cultural/religious dietary restrictions. We held tastings of our in-patient catering during the week too.
