have to say

Jo is fantastic. I started working with her before undergoing the Whipple procedure to remove a tumour from my pancreas, as my digestive system was to change quite drastically. She was so well informed about this procedure and what I'd need in the build up and after. She is thorough, helpful, kind and very quick to respond - always looking to answer questions and find solutions which is invaluable when working alongside the NHS who are brilliant but don't necessarily have the time to investigate complicated problems thoroughly.
I came to Jo for some advice on how to help my elderly father, who was suffering with weight loss as a result of esophagitis. Jo’s advice has proven invaluable as my father’s appetite is now increasing and he’s feeling better in himself already after only a few weeks. It’s been a big relief to have this specialist guidance and help with arranging a prescription; I would have no hesitation in recommending Jo to anyone who has similar concerns for a loved one.
Outstanding Dietician. Worked with Jo as a Senior HPB CNS to manage Complex Patients with Liver, Pancreas, Biliary tract and GI Cancer. Jo uses a holistic approach to manage nutrition and works closely with the multidisciplinary team to achieve the best outcomes for patients. She works at a very advanced level also recommending further investigations to find other causes of problems such as persistent diarrhea, bloating and other GI symtoms. She is meticulous, passionate and dynamic about her work.

Cancer Support

There’s a huge amount of information online about diet and cancer, much of which is not factually correct which can lead to unnecessary dietary restriction, confusion and perhaps even fear or anxiety around food. 

Our nutrition support for cancer patients includes:

Clarity, confidence and control over what to eat
A supported immune system to keep you feeling well
Improvements in fatigue and mood
Optimised nutritional status
Maintained muscle mass, strength and resilience
Keep on top of digestive symptoms
Improved healing after surgery
Management of treatment side effects
Holistic support to improve your quality of life
Reduced risk of disease recurrence

Cancer Prevention

According to Cancer Research UK, 1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime. That’s an unnerving statistic. The good news is that around 40% cases can be prevented through lifestyle and dietary changes.

Our advice on cancer prevention nutrition provides you with:

Greater clarity, confidence and control over what to eat
A supported immune system to keep you feeling well
Improvements in fatigue and mood
Support your weight management
Optimised gut health and digestion
What can a cancer dietitian help with?

A cancer dietitian is someone who has specialist training and skills to look after people with cancer.

They can provide you with the answers to questions you may have surrounding diet and cancer, as well as support you with any problems you may be experiencing with your eating.

Cancer dietitians provide evidence-based advice as well as practical tips to help manage any side effects from cancer treatment.

They will also assess your nutritional requirements and provide specific meals and snack ideas that help you meet your requirements, based on your personal preferences.

How does a cancer dietitian work?

Your cancer dietitian will work with you to assess what nutrition advice or support is needed at each stage of your care.

Often, and only with your consent, your cancer dietitian will liaise with your GP, oncologist (and other consultants), nurses and other healthcare professionals to provide a multidisciplinary approach to looking after your needs.

They will have a conversation with you to establish your current eating patterns and preferences

Can cancer be treated with diet?

Whilst diet can play a key role in maintaining someone’s nutritional status, there’s no scientific evidence that a particular diet can cure cancer.

If someone is offering you a diet plan that relies on multiple supplements and/or lots of dietary restrictions, then we would be wary about taking advice from them. Always check the credentials of the person offering you nutritional advice. If in doubt, seek the support of a registered dietitian who has specialist knowledge in cancer nutrition.
