CHECK IF YOUR DIETITIAN IS REGISTERED
Members of the public can now ensure that their dietitian, speech therapist or speech and language therapist is registered by checking the health regulator CORU website at coru.ie.
Only those who have applied or registered with CORU, Ireland’s multiprofession health regulator, are entitled to practise using these titles.
They can only be registered after providing proof of their education, qualifications and training.
It means that CORU can run fitness to practise hearings into the conduct and competence of the professionals who are registered with the body.
A dietitian is a health professional who has a Bachelor’s degree specialising in foods and nutrition, as well as a period of practical training in a hospital and a community setting.
