Nutrition & Dietetics

The dietitians' primary function is to provide nutrition counselling to inpatients, outpatients and their caregivers. We work in multi-disciplinary teams to provide wholesome healthcare to our patients. We assess the nutritional status of patients and recommend appropriate dietary treatment. The dietitians work closely with Foodservice chefs and hospitality colleagues to ensure that the prescribed meals are given to the correct inpatients. We also help our chefs ensure that inpatients without dietary restrictions are served healthy meals.

Besides clinical dietetics, the dietitians also conduct general and specialised nutrition talks and workshops to hospital staff, corporate clients and members of the public.

Our dietitians also play active roles in various professional and community organisations such as Singapore Nutrition & Dietetics Association, Diabetic Society of Singapore, Singapore Association of the Study of Obesity and Singapore National Heart Association.
