And introducing...

We are happy to welcome Sue Williams, our new Dietitian Project Manager.  On the subject of ONS prescribing, Sue says, “Appropriate oral nutritional supplement prescribing is not just about financial outcomes.  Clinical outcomes to ensure patients are prescribed products when indicated and with necessary support are key.  Reviewing and educating the patient on the products ensures appropriate usage and that the most suitable product and dosage is used for each individual."  If you would like more information on appropriate prescribing, please feel free to contact Sue.
