 FREQUENTLY ASKED  QUESTIONS 

 DO I NEED A MEDICAL REFERRAL TO COME AND SEE YOU? 

No, you don’t. However, it is helpful to provide me with as much information as you can prior to the appointment so that we can make the best use of our time together. If you are able to forward your most recent clinic letter (from your oncologist) and or any recent blood test results, that would be fabulous.

 I HAVE PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE. CAN I USE IT TO FUND MY DIETETIC    CONSULTATIONS? 

Most private medical insurance policies typically cover 2-3 dietetic consultations. Please contact your insurer to check whether Meredy is registered with them, and ascertain what your specific policy covers. You will be asked to provide an authorisation code prior to booking your first nutrition consultation. 

 MY MUM ISN'T FEELING WELL ENOUGH TO COME TO CLINIC, BUT I'D REALLY    APPRECIATE YOUR ADVICE ON HOW TO KEEP HER WELL NOURISHED. CAN I    COME INSTEAD? 

Yes, but your mum will need to provide written or verbal consent first. How about a video call or telephone consultation - your mum can join the conversation and we can make sure that her questions are answered.

 I THINK MY DIET IS PRETTY GOOD AND I JUST WANT TO DOUBLE CHECK I'M ON    THE RIGHT TRACK. DO YOU OFFER SINGLE APPOINTMENTS? 

Yes, absolutely. These are charged at £165 (Online or telephone) and £195 face-to-face in clinic, or you may be able use your private medical insurance.

 I'D LIKE TO PURCHASE A NUTRITION COACHING PROGRAMME AS A GIFT FOR MY FRIEND WHO HAS RECENTLY BEEN DIAGNOSED WITH CANCER. CAN I DO THAT?  

That’s a lovely idea, and yes you can. While it’s always nice to receive a surprise gift, in this instance it is essential to approach your friend first to make sure that nutrition coaching is something they would like to engage with, and it’s the right time for them. 

 I'D LIKE TO CREATE MY OWN NUTRITION COACHING ROGRAMMME, IS THAT    POSSIBLE?

Yes. Get in touch, and together we can create a package that will work best to suit your needs.
