Health chiefs are warning the public to beware of a bogus nutritionist.
The Department of Health and Social Care says that a local resident has been contacted by telephone by a person claiming to be a nutritionist and offering to help them with their nutrition.
A DHSC spokesman said: ‘The department wishes to reassure the public that this person is not employed as a nutritionist at Ramsey and District Cottage Hospital, neither do they work in any other position for the department.
‘The advice is that any telephone conversation with this person should not be continued. At no time should anyone disclose any personal details including their email address to the caller.’
He added that anyone who had concerns about nutrition, balanced diet or dietary requirements should seek advice from their GP or pharmacist.
