Community Paediatric Dietetic Service

Somerset Partnership provides a Community Paediatric Dietetic Service to support families and children who are struggling with weight management. We have uploaded information and a referral form for accessing the Paediatric Dietetic Service which could be of use to School Nurses in the event of a parent requesting dietary advice for their child.  For example, this might be used following a call from parents for NCMP results. In the first instance, parents who have concerns about their child’s weight or eating habits should be encouraged to discuss these with the school nurse or their family GP.
