Nutritional Therapy Programme


Free for Central Camden PCN's eligible patients

We are pleased to introduce our two Healthy Eating Advisors  (HEA) for Central Camden Primary Care Network (PCN), Kaz Mandikate and Therese Conlon-Barratt. They are both Nutritional Therapists registered with BANT (British Associate for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine) and the CNHC (Complimentary and Natural Healthcare Council). 

The aim of the nutritionists sessions is to make patients feel more confident in knowing which foods are good for you, and they will help you to see the benefits of a healthy and balanced diet. By encouraging healthy eating amongst children and adults we can tackle obesity and the many health conditions that it could land you with.

Some of the benefits of having a healthy diet and an and active lifestyle include:

  • Preventing type 2 diabetes
  • Preventing heart problems
  • Improving mental health
