Bristol Royal Hospital for Children is one of the leading specialist cardiac centres for children diagnosed with cardiac disease in the UK.  The cardiac dietitian provides an inpatient service to children admitted across the region from the critical care unit through to the HDU and the specialist cardiac ward.  We share the care of children across the South West England and Wales with Dietitians working in local hospitals and in the community. The Dietitian works in close collaboration with regional specialist paediatric cardiac Dietitians who meet biannually to update and develop best evidence based practice for nutrition management of children with moderate to severe cardiac complications. 

An integral part of our service is to develop, train and support the parents of cardiac children from breast feeding and enteral nutrition support, through to complicated diets such as the Low LCT fat diet for Chylothorax management.  We liaise with local and community Dietitians to enable quality dietetic care into the home, to achieve the best possible growth and development to enhance pre and post-operative nutrition status.
