Clinical standard 3: Multi-disciplinary team (MDT) review

A seven day integrated nutrition service

Lancashire Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has implemented a nurse-led seven day nutrition service for individuals at risk of malnutrition. Patients now have improved access to nutrition services seven days a week. As a result, patients are discharged earlier, lengths of stay have reduced and admissions avoided for 99% of patients seen.
