This specialist NHS clinic based at the Royal Hospital for Children, Glasgow serves families of children and young people in Greater Glasgow or from the West of Scotland with complicated feeding difficulties that are best helped by a team.   The feeding team make detailed assessments of growth and nutritional status, diet and eating behaviour and can usually suggest changes to help.

This is a small specialist clinic, which deals with more complex feeding problems, so we do not accept referrals straight from primary care or from outwith NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde.

For referrals from within NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde please complete our referral form; we are always happy to discuss possible referrals.
