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 the 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.
*The low FODMAP diet is a diet low in fermentable carbohydrates which has been shown to be effective in improving symptoms of IBS.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Miss Ruth Conroy at Spire include:
