Advancing Practice in Food Service Dietetics (2 Day Course)

Facilitators: Rachel Liston and Megan McClurg


The BDA is delighted to launch this two-day Advancing Practice in Food Service in Dietetics course in conjunction with the Food Services specialist group

Day 1 start time 10.00am

Day 2 start time 09.00am

Join us on this 2-day face-to-face course, (6th & 7th June) recommended for HCPC Registered Dietitians with at least 1 year of experience. The course content will cover a full introduction to Food Service dietetics including but not limited to the following:

-             Regulations, legislation, and hospital food standards

-             Recipe, menu analysis, and menu composition

-             Sustainability

-             Staff and visitor, retail food standards within healthcare

-             Guidance and support in writing a food and nutrition strategy

The course will include networking opportunities, collaboration exercises, workshops, and lectures and provide attendees with all the information they would need to work within the food service sector

The Independent Review of Hospital Food, published by DHSC in October 2020, recommended that ‘there is a named food service dietitian in every Trust responsible for overseeing patient, staff and visitor catering, with appropriate funding to support this role outside of clinical duties.’ This recommendation has been strengthened by the new National Healthcare Food and Drink Standards 2022 which has now made it mandatory for NHS Trusts to have a food service dietitian. This course will be a must-have to support the knowledge and skills for these specialist dietitians.
