Consent for care
By engaging the dietetic services of Gillian McConnell, Dietitian, you are providing consent for the collection of relevant demographic, social and medical details to enable Gillian to complete your assessment and compile a treatment plan. This may include taking measurements of various body sites and weighing.
You are also consenting to other professionals involved in your care being contacted by Gillian, to gain other relevant information or to give feedback on your dietary treatment plan where this would be beneficial for your overall care. This will always be discussed with you before other professionals involved in your care will be contacted.
