If a patient is unable to meet their nutritional requirements through diet alone or is unable to eat, then enteral feeding may be recommended. This may be nasogastric (NG), gastrostomy e.g. PEG (percutaneous endoscopic gastrostomy) or RIG (radiologically inserted gastrostomy) or jejunal feeding. There are a number of enteral feeding products available within the contract for Lothian. The dietitian will recommend a prescribable feed to meet the patients nutritional requirements. All adult patients within Lothian on enteral feeds are monitored and reviewed in conjunction with the Community Enteral Nutrition Team (CENT) contact: 0131 537 9514. All ancillaries for enteral feeding are non prescribable products. The supply of these is co-ordinated by CENT. Refer to ‘Lothian Enteral Tube Feeding.
