I have been a registered dietitian for many years. For the majority of this time I have worked within the NHS. However I have also worked in the charity sector (for Diabetes UK), within the food industry and for Brighton & Sussex Medical School. As well as my current role at the University, I maintain my clinical skills and specialist knowledge as I continue to work in the NHS as a Diabetes Specialist Dietitian.
