We asked Megan Jones, the Dietetic Assistant and Dietetic Support Worker representative on our Board of Directors, to reflect on a “day in the life” of her role as both a Dietetic Assistant and on the BDA Board.
Dietetic assistants and support workers are a vital part of the dietetic team, working alongside RDs to support patients and improve services. We put some questions to three of our members to find out more about their roles and why they considered it as a career.
We set out our full response to the NHS People Plan, including specific actions we believe are needed on CPD, staff wellbeing and workforce expansion.
Aisling Pigott asked Sam Eyre-Williams about what it is like to work as a DSW, and what challenges she faces.
