I currently work at the Heart of England NHS Foundation Trust (HEFT) as a Specialist Weight Management Dietitian and I am team leader for the dietetic weight management service. I qualified as a Registered Dietitian in 2006, graduating from Leeds Metropolitan University and more recently I graduated with a Masters in Nutrition and Dietetics researching key themes of patient satisfaction within a bariatric dietetic service.I have specialised in weight management and weight loss surgery for the last six years and work in the regional specialist weight management clinic at HEFT. I have a very keen interest in behaviour change and understand that a lot of the changes required to be successful with weight loss are not just dietary changes, but also lifestyle changes. I work with both weight management and bariatric patients, which enables a valuable insight into the patient journey. I have helped set up and run intensive specialist group sessions and helped in redeveloping the obesity care pathway within the weight management and bariatric service. More recently I have led in the development of support groups for bariatric patients within Birmingham. I am passionate about the area of weight management and weight loss surgery and look forward to helping you to achieve your goals.
