Home Enteral Nutrition Service
This service is available to patients who cannot obtain adequate nutrition via the normal route (i.e. from a normal diet). Enteral nutrition is a way of providing nutrition and fluid via a tube, into the digestive tract. The Home Enteral Feeding Dietitian coordinates pre-discharge preparation and monitors the person after discharge.
People referred for nutrition and dietetic advice from Primary Care can be seen in the home environment or at out patient’s clinics as appropriate.
