Service Description:
The eating disorder service (EDS) offers specialist assessment and treatment to people aged eight and above (adults, adolescents and children). The service works with individuals and their families to support them in their recovery. Services provided include:

- psychological treatments delivered on an individual basis, to families and in groups;

- dietetic input and nutritional support;

- medical and nursing assessment and intervention

The decision to offer a service will be based upon the individual's ability to benefit from treatments for an eating disorder.

The EDS team includes a consultant psychiatrist, specialist adult and CAMHS nurses, CBT therapists, family therapists, dieticians and psychologists.

Are referrals necessary? Referrals will be accepted through GPs, community mental health teams, home treatment teams (HTT) and the A&E liasion service
