Iain Scott RD
I am passionate about my role as a dietitian, helping others with their nutritional support needs and providing a person centered service. As a registered Dietitian with the Health and Care Profession Council (HCPC), I aim to provide advice and services which are evidence based and provided to a high professional and ethical standard of practice.
I have a wide interest in the field of dietetics and nutrition including nutritional support, weight management and early years nutrition. However, I have particular interest in Autism, avoidant or restrictive food management and sports nutrition. I am a level 1 ISAK registered anthropometrist and use anthropometric measurements in the monitoring of sports performance and nutritional status
I have worked with groups and individuals over a number of years in various community based settings to provide advice and support through activities such as my cooking and healthy eating workshops and within my health promotion role within the NHS. I was very humbled and grateful to have been awarded the 2017 Herald Higher Education Award for Outstanding Contribution from a Student in recognition of my community work.
I am also a father of four wonderful children who are all almost in high school, I am a level 1 coach for Scottish athletics and I have recently taken up running.
More about Dietitians
Dietitians are qualified and regulated health professionals that assess, diagnose and treat dietary and nutritional problems at an individual and wider public-health level.
They use up-to-date public health and scientific research on food, health and disease which they translate into practical guidance to enable people to make appropriate lifestyle and food choices.
The term dietitian is a protected title and as such, a dietitian is qualified to at least degree level in dietetics (or related degree with a post graduate diploma in dietetics). You can find out more from the British Dietetic Association
Dietitians are registered and regulated by the Health and Care Professions Council. This ensures a professional and ethical standard of practice.
