ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a protocol driven dietitian led coeliac clinic. At these visits patients discuss their clinical status and diet. Routine bloods including EMA are checked. Any specific concerns can be discussed with an available consultant. Clinicians carried out a postal questionnaire to gauge patients' satisfaction with this new system. 53 questionnaires were sent out and 35 replies were received. 90% of patients preferred the new system. Specific reasons included the opportunity to discuss diet in detail, a longer appointment and reduced waiting times, particularly on the day of appointment.
