Hello, I'm Van Patel and I’m a specialist dietician. I trained at the University of North London and completed my dietetic training at the Hammersmith Hospital, London. Since then I’ve worked as a dietician in a variety of settings in London and the Midlands. I currently work as a Specialist Weight Management/Bariatric (Weight Loss Surgery) dietician at Birmingham Heartlands Hospital.
My special interests include Weight management, Bariatric Surgery, and health and wellbeing through lifestyle and behaviour modification to prevent disease.
The best thing about being a dietician is following the client journey, empowering them to build a healthy relationship with food to overcome fears and helping them transform both physically and mentally. My mantra is “It’s not what you eat it’s about why you eat!”
I am passionate about self–development, fitness and health and a firm believer in a positive mind set.I’m delighted and honoured to be joining the Virgin Care Private team because it’s an innovative and friendly practice. I’m looking forward to working as part of the team, providing an evidence based practice to meet your personal health goals.
