Service Description

We offer a day care programme to adults who have eating disorders such as Anorexia Nervosa and severe forms of Bulimia Nervosa.

The programme gives intensive, five day-a-week treatment using a multi-disciplinary approach where nurses, psychiatrists and psychologists as well as therapists such as dieticians, occupational therapists and psychotherapists are involved in giving treatment. The length of a person's stay in the programme is agreed collaboratively with staff.

Features of the programme include:

  • Intensive specialist assessment
  • Supervised meals and snacks
  • Supervised periods after meals
  • Specialist nutritional assessment and review
  • Medical monitoring and review
  • Family or partner involvement, as appropriate
  • Individual therapy sessions
  • Therapeutic groups such as relaxation, stress management, body image groups, psycho education and creative expression.
