Shepherd Works – Ceasing patient consultations from 1st August 2017


After 20 years of service, it is time for me to take a new direction, and so Shepherd Works will cease seeing patients from 1 st August 2017.

Over the past twenty years I have been a passionate advocate for raising awareness and improving the quality of life for people with coeliac disease, irritable bowel syndrome, and food intolerances and gut conditions more broadly. I have been a fellow coeliac-sufferer, a dedicated researcher proudly training audiences around the world, an award-winning author, a fearless patient advocate and a trusted friend to many of you. Shepherd Works has grown over the years, has a well-respected world-wide reputation and I am immensely proud of its identity as a centre of excellence.

My books will continue to be available for purchase through this website.

Thank you to every patient who has entrusted Shepherd Works with their care over the past twenty years – you helped make us be the best we could be. Thank you also to the professional colleagues I have worked with. I’ll always look back fondly over the past two decades.

The details of the exceptional dietitians who work with me at Shepherd Works and are now commencing their own private practices are below. I strongly encourage you to contact any of these dietitians for your care; they are passionate to achieve the best outcomes for their patients, with warmth, expertise and scientifically-sound advice. They continue to radiate the Shepherd Works’ spirit.

With love and best wishes to you all

Dr Sue Shepherd
