Find a Dietitian (nutritionconnection.com.au)
Our Find a Dietitian Service is an online directory that enables you to connect, communicate and discover dietitians and their services. The Find a Dietitian Service’s purpose is to ultimately connect you with a dietitian and give you the ability to arrange an appointment. Unless otherwise stated, dietitians are unrelated and not employed by us.
Please note that any contract for the supply of services with a dietitian is directly between you and that dietitian. We are not a party to that contract. All services provided by a dietitian are completely controlled by the dietitian and not us. Any arrangement or communication with a dietitian is solely at your own risk. For the avoidance of doubt, we have no liability or obligation to you if a dietitian breaches any terms of that contract or any law (including if any services provided by a dietitian are not of acceptable quality or fit for purpose).
We do not endorse any dietitian nor do we endorse any of their services. Although we may do general checks on the dietitians at our discretion, we do not guarantee or make any representation that any information provided about or by a dietitian is correct or that they are appropriately qualified as a dietitian or otherwise. We have no control, influence or involvement in any arrangement between you and a dietitian and as such we do not guarantee the quality, suitability, reliability, accuracy and usefulness of any dietitian, their services and the information they provide. You must satisfy yourself as to the suitability of the dietitian, and it is your responsibility to ensure that the services requested are appropriate.
For these reasons, if you have a dispute with any dietitian, you release us and hold us harmless from actions, claims, demands and losses of every kind arising out of or in any way connected with that dispute.
Any information published by us is general in nature and does not constitute medical or any other type of advice.
