Cilliers Lynette

Lynette Cilliers is a clinical dietitian at Groote Schuur hospital and in the private sector.

Lynette is experienced in the nutritional management of a variety of patients including critically ill, intensive care, surgical and medical patients.

She has a special interest in the nutritional management of patients with renal failure and transplant patients.

After concluding her studies at the North West University, Lynette completed her community service year at the Klerksdorp-Tshepong Hospital complex in 2007. Here she gained experience in clinical nutritional management of patients. Lynette remained there until she relocated to the Western Cape in 2009, where she joined the Metro Health Integrated Nutrition Program. She spent 4 years working in the Metro Health System in the Khayelitsha-Eastern Substructure. The majority of her time was spent ensuring that nutrition services were integrated into all levels of healthcare. This involved collaboration with Clinics, Day Hospitals, Non-Government Organizations, Non-Profit Organisations and other partners, to establish and improve the healthcare provided to the public in the decentralised healthcare model. She returned to Clinical Nutrition in 2013 and has been working at Groote Schuur Hospital in the renal and transplant units ever since.

Lynette has a passion for integrating healthcare in a practical manner into the daily lives of patients.
