Miss Ruth Conroy
BSc (Hons), SRD
I qualified in 1994 from the University of Surrey with a BSc (Hons) in Human Nutrition and Dietetics (SRD), following my training at University College/Middlesex Hospital London. I have a wide range of experience of adult clinical dietetics, and worked as the lead specialist oncology dietitian for 11 years at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, Northwood. I have extensive experience of providing dietetic care and nutritional support for oncology patients.
Since 2011 after completing training on the low FODMAP* diet at King’s College, London I have started using a low FODMAP approach to treating IBS patients.
I work closely with gastroenterologists and oncologists to provide high quality care for all patients. I maintain up to date practice through continuous professional development – attending regular workshops, short courses and meetings. I strive to provide excellent standard of dietetic care and improve patient outcomes.
*A low FODMAP diet is a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates which has been shown to be effective in improving symptoms of IBS.
