Sioned Quirke BSc : Dietician
Sioned Quirke manages the only obesity service in Wales. She also provides advice to the Welsh Government on obesity. Although she now lives in Pontyclun near Llantrisant, she is originally from Bethel, near Caernarfon.
Sioned works with patients who have a BMI of over 50, and have profound problems. With an element of counselling as part of her work, she attempts to get to the root of the problem which has caused the obesity in the first place. She is also registered with the HCPC (Health and Care Professionals Council).
“Everybody has to eat, and we know food affects our health in so many ways, but it can also help us to manage disease. At the same time, I really love food so, for me, being a dietitian is a marriage made in heaven.”
