Referral Guideline

​A patient should be referred to a nutritionist​ when it would be beneficial for the patient to be in a group of people, to learn more about healthy eating and different recipes, but the patient will not have a one to one consultation and meal plan.

A patient should be referred to a dietician​ when the patient needs a one to one consultation during which the dietitian will review and consult latest blood results from the health centre file, upon which a meal plan is drawn up centred around the patient's dietary needs, health conditions and cooking skills.​


The nutritionist can be contacted via email on nutritionist.phc@gov.mt or by phone on 25576183.
