Availability - Murrayfield: Thursday 6pm-8pm (1st and 4th Thursday of month).
I was the first graduate of dietetics in the UK and have an impressive record of decorations from my professional association (BDA) in a career spanning some 30 years. I have practiced as a Dietitian at the Murrayfield Hospital since it opened in 1984.
After graduating, I began professional life as a Dietitian in gastroenterology; this was soon followed by promotion to Chief Renal Specialist and shortly afterwards to Area Dietitian. I then headed homeward to Edinburgh to take up my first of many teaching posts. Alongside teaching, my modest research profile and extensive clinical record continue to flourish, culminating in a number of key achievements including a successful PhD (nutritional status of haemodialysis patients treated at home), publications in the BMJ and a number of opportunities to present my work internationally (Boston, San Diego, Assisi, Madrid, Umea, Jerusalem).
I have recently designed the Nutrition Care web site for NES (www.nutritioncare.scot.nhs.uk. ) and was the architect of the national Nutrition module as part of the DOTS CPD framework for foundation doctors. I have also authored several textbooks, including a Blackwell best seller (Clinical Cases in Dietetics).
More recently, I was appointed to the position of Lead Specialist Dietitian with the bariatric service at the Spire Edinburgh Hospitals where I have developed the dietetic arm of the multi-disciplinary team supporting the client load of overweight and obese patients.
