Mrs Bethany Hallam
I am a Senior Specialist Dietitian in the UK, registered with the Health and Care Professions Council, British Dietetic Association and affiliate member to other specialist groups including British Obesity and Metabolic Surgery Society.
I have over 20 years’ experience working within the NHS since graduating with an honours degree in Dietetics from Leeds Beckett University, in 2000. I subsequently completed my Msc Nutrition with distinction in 2019 and remain committed to continued professional development.
I am highly skilled, knowledgeable and experienced and provide evidenced based, practical and personalised advice. I continue to lead a team of surgical dietitians, as an upper gastro intestinal specialist Dietitian within Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust and have dietetic experience in all areas of surgery (thoracic, colorectal, urology, pancreatic). I have also held specialist positions in weight loss (bariatric) surgery both within the NHS and private sector and continue to manage the complications of weight loss surgery, as part of my NHS role. I have extensive experience in gastroenterology, nutrition support, oncology and a special interest in gastroparesis.
I am trained in both behaviour change skills and advanced communication and will support you to identify barriers and strategies to overcome these, with empathy and understanding.
