We encourage BDA members to shout loud and proud about the work they, their dietetic colleagues and wider teams do by using these key facts to promote the vital work of dietitians. We have also produced a concise document highlighting the overall benefits of dietetic intervention in NHS England, which you can find at the bottom of the page.

The Key Fact sheets, that we are continuing to develop, are written by the Specialist Groups of the BDA to raise the profile of dietitians and highlight their varied roles in different speciality areas:

  • Neurosciences
  • Obesity/ References
  • Oncology
  • Prescribing appropriately
  • Public Health

These Key fact sheets are currently under review and up-to-date versions will be published soon.
