The Cancer Dietitian: About Meredy Birdi

I’m Meredy. I have been a cancer dietitian for nearly 25 years. You can read more about my experience below. But I don’t want to talk about me just yet. I want to talk about you. When you are diagnosed with cancer, undergoing treatment, or in recovery, you may feel like control of your life has been taken away. You may feel confused, scared, anxious, low, angry or just plain exhausted.


Taking back control and doing something positive helps alleviate many of these feelings. And that is where I come in. I help you take control of your diet to make you feel better, both physically and emotionally. There is a huge amount of conflicting dietary information out there and it can be hard to know what to believe or what is relevant to your particular situation.


As an expert in cancer nutrition, I work one-to-one with you to investigate your specific dietary needs and show you how to put the latest dietary advice into practice in a way that works in your life. This is not just about giving you information though. I am here to listen to you, support you and encourage you as you take back control.

I''m here to listen, support and encourage you,

as you take back control.

The benefits of working with me

I am a private dietitian and nutritionist with nearly 25 years of experience specialising in cancer support. Over the years, I have been privileged to work in a number of university teaching hospitals in the NHS as well as private practices.  I am also proud to have served as a Macmillan dietitian during my career.

I am one of the few cancer nutritionists in the UK with dual qualifications as a cancer dietitian and a nutritional therapist. This means I combine medical insight with a holistic point of view.

I will give cancer and diet advice that is specific to you, not generalisations.


I will give you the time you need to feel safe and reassured, not rushed in and out.


I can advise you about nutritional supplements should you need them.​


No need to travel to me when you’re tired or not feeling great - we can meet online or talk over the phone. 


I am HCPC registered and CNHC registered.

I’m in this with you. This is your life. Let’s make sure you can live it to the full.
