Surrey Dietitian is run by Harriet Smith; a UK Registered Dietitian with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) and the British Dietetic Association (BDA). Surrey Dietitian sometimes outsources work to other Registered Nutritionists and Registered Dietitians, all of whom work to their professional codes of conduct. Harriet aims to use her scientific knowledge, clinical skills, and expertise in an accurate and professional manner.
Harriet adheres to the HCPC standards, which stipulates that any advertising must be accurate and done in a responsible way. Harriet will not make or support unjustifiable statements relating to products or services (as per HCPC and BDA guidelines) or promote one product over another (as per food industry regulations). Any potential financial rewards will not play a part in the advice or recommendations of products or services offered.
Harriet adheres to the Internet Advertising Bureau (IAB) and ASA UK guidelines for sponsorship and advertising, which states that it must be made clear when an individual has been paid for a promotional post or product review (i.e. by including #ad in posts). Harriet pledges to disclose any sponsored posts, advertising and product reviews whether this is monetary or in the form of free products. Any product reviews or posts will be based on Harriet’s own opinion, even if sponsored.
