Ms Sonal Patel
I am a qualified Dietitian and have been practicing in the NHS for over 20 years with wide ranging experience in clinical dietetics both in the acute (including intensive care) and community (GP clinics) settings, seeing both adult and paediatric patients.
I have also been working in private practice at Spire Leicester since 2001 and provide a dietetic service to both in-patients and oncology patients. I have extensive experience in providing complex nutritional support e.g. enteral (tube feeding) and parenteral (intravenous) nutrition and understand the clinical safety requirements with both forms of nutrition support.
I speak Gujarati which is helpful when seeing Gujarati speaking patients.
I see outpatients with a written referral from a medical consultant.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Ms Sonal Patel at Spire include:
Sonal Patel provides nutritional support following illness for cancer/oncology; gastrointestinal eg Irritable Bowel Syndrome (use of low FODMAP diet), coeliac, food intolerances; weight management; diabetes; cardiovascular health eg high blood pressure, high cholesterol; balanced eating; paediatric dietetics eg fussy eating, obesity, healthy eating.
Spire Leicester Hospital is only able to provide Covid-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. Covid-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
