Overview

NDR-UK is now a well-established social enterprise, with an excellent reputation for  printed, evidence-based patient information. Our resources are written by expert dietitians to support a health professional customer base (of over 700 accounts) to deliver effective behavioural change in order to improve self-management of health conditions through dietary choices.

Our Trustees/Directors provide support to an employed staff team, setting and overseeing the delivery of our strategic and annual business plans. The Board currently consists of 4 Registered Dietitians and 2 non-dietitians and we are seeking to recruit another non-dietitian to our Board.

The Board meets quarterly, through 2 face-to-face meetings a year (held in Glasgow and Birmingham), plus 2 meetings by teleconference.

One of the key challenges for the future is how NDR-UK meets the evolving situations of (1) reduced public health sector finance and (2) the growing need to educate patients to self-manage health conditions though making informed diet and nutrition choices.

A key business objective is the development of digital forms of information to increase accessibility and meet the demands of health care professionals and their patients, as clinical practices change. We are already well on our way to making this a reality but Board level expertise or interest in digital communications in a health or social care setting would be especially welcome.
