Undernutrition is often thought of as being a third world problem that doesn't affect the western population. Unfortunately this is not the case. At any one time there are over 3 million adults that are undernourished in the UK. This can have very serious consequences for those individuals but also the economy of the nation.

Focus on Undernutrition is an award winning team that strives to prevent unavoidable undernutrition.

This site is primarily aimed at professionals working within health and social care. However if you are interested in finding out more about undernutrition or worried you might be at risk you might find the 'how to' pages useful. If you do have any concerns or queries then you should contact your GP or dietitian.

"Focus on Undernutrition is an outstanding example of the appropriate delivery of nutritional care. As the population ages and the financial pressures on the NHS increase, this model of care provides an excellent example of the service doing the right thing, in the right place at the right time and in a sustainable, cost-effective manner..."
