To support the preparations for Coronavirus (COVID-19), we have made changes to the services we provide
How Does Our Service Work?
Please speak to your GP practice or any health care professional to request a referral. You will then be written to by our team with an appointment or asked to call us to book an appointment convenient for you. Clinics and workshops are held in local health centres and community venues throughout Staffordshire.

Home Enteral Feeding Service
The Home Enteral Feeding Service provides advice and support to adult patients aged 18 years and over in the community who have a tube placed to receive enteral nutrition and / or fluid.
The team consists of registered dietitians and dietetic assistants.
The dietitian will assess the individual patient requirements and recommend a suitable feed to meet the needs of the patient. This will be reviewed and monitored regularly based on the clinical condition.
The team will communicate frequently with the home delivery service to ensure feed and ancillaries are provided in a timely manner.
We also have support from dedicated Nutrition Nurses who will provide expert advice on tube care, stoma care and training.
