Patient Client Sessions

Dietitians across Leicestershire and Rutland provide education sessions for patients and the public.  This can often be initiated by the Primary Health Care Team (e.g. group education sessions for people with diabetes) or can be at the request of support and voluntary groups.  Depending on the organisation that requests the talk, there can sometimes be a charge.
Please contact our Headquarters on 0116 222 7170 if you would like to arrange an education session.
