Overview

We treat a range of eating disorders alongside co-morbidities from first presentation to severe and intractable, including those patients who are diagnosed late in the development of the condition. We offer assessment, treatment and management of people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder or mixed eating disorder symptoms (eating disorder not otherwise specified) in an outpatient and day care service providing a range of evidence-based care packages tailored to the needs of patients and their carers.

We identify the most appropriate treatment pathway for the patient and provide advice/treatment in the most appropriate setting. At all times the service will effectively and appropriately liaise with families or carers and other outside agencies. The service will provide psychological, emotional, social and physical interventions to the client group.

Our unit is internationally renowned for its research and is at the forefront of treatment development, having generated much of the evidence underpinning contemporary eating disorder treatments.
