    I cannot praise Jo highly enough for helping me resolve my (complex) gut issues in a structured and simplified way. She was patient, empathetic, listened carefully and supportive. She went over and above to send me resources, meal plans and information and was always happy to answer any questions I had. I can honestly say, without Jo's help I would not be where I am today with my health and quality of life. I cannot recommend her highly enough. Thank you Jo!

    Jo is fantastic. I started working with her before undergoing the Whipple procedure to remove a tumour from my pancreas, as my digestive system was to change quite drastically. She was so well informed about this procedure and what I'd need in the build up and after. She is thorough, helpful, kind and very quick to respond - always looking to answer questions and find solutions which is invaluable when working alongside the NHS who are brilliant but don't necessarily have the time to investigate complicated problems thoroughly. Would recommend to anyone in need of nutritional advice. Thanks Jo

    I have referred patients to them

    "Jo Cunningham is an outstanding dietitian whom I’ve been fortunate to work with over a number of years. I have asked for her input on patients with a range of conditions including inflammatory bowel disease and irritable bowel syndrome, with excellent clinical outcomes. She combines an extensive, clinical, up-to-date knowledge base with professionalism, empathy and a holistic view. Importantly, my patients have been delighted to have the opportunity to discuss their gut health and/or symptoms with a dietitian who listens to their needs and formulates a personalised treatment plan. I would highly recommend her. "
