Children’s Nutrition and Dietetics Service Greenwich

We are a team of dietitians working with children and families in the Royal borough of Greenwich. 

We help with a range of feeding and nutrition problems.

We use our knowledge of food and nutrition to promote health and give advice on how to prevent nutrition problems.  We encourage good health by helping you to make a positive change in food choices for your child.

We accept referrals for the following:

  • Faltering growth/children who are underweight
  • Selective eating/Fussy eating
  • Vitamin and mineral deficiencies e.g. iron deficiency
  • Tube feeding
  • Food allergies
  • Disordered eating for children known to Greenwich CAMHS
  • Dietary assessment for gut problems e.g. constipation etc
  • Overweight and obesity for children under the age of 4.

Children from 4 to 17 years should be referred to Xplore in the first instance.  Xplore organisers can be contacted on 0208 317 5010 (option 5) or xplore.greenwich@gll.org.

We accept referrals from any professional working with the child and family e.g. doctor, nurse, social worker, teacher etc.

Oxleas Patient Experience survey

The Oxleas Patient Experience survey gives you the opportunity to feedback on the care and treatment you have received. We also encourage your friends, family and carers to also provide feedback. Hearing your views gives us a better understanding of the needs of our patients, families and carers which helps us to make sure that we are providing a good standard of care. 

The short survey only takes a few minutes to complete and you can provide a written comment explaining what you think is working well and what is not. The Patient Experience team will collect the results of the surveys and these are shared with the relevant departments and management teams. This helps us to shape our services to continually improve the quality of the care and treatment we provide.
