Our eating disorders services are currently provided by a specialist team which covers two key localities, West Surrey (including Hampshire Borders) and East Surrey, and day care is available at the Albert Suite, Farnham Road Hospital in Guildford.
A triage assessment system operates to keep waiting times down. Although staff are nominally linked to a specific locality, staff work flexibly across the Trust area to ensure individual and group therapy is provided equitably.
Our aim is to offer a high quality service to adults (age 18+) who suffer from Anorexia Nervosa or moderate to severe forms of Bulimia Nervosa. Limited input will be offered to clients with Binge Eating Disorder, usually a group. Referrals of young people aged below 18 years should be addressed to CAMHS.

We accept referrals from GPs and Surrey and Borders clinicians. It helps us if base line blood tests results are made available, plus height and weight and frequency of behaviour in the referral letter.
People should be stable before being accepted for care by us - we will offer consultation and advice during acute phases of medical or psychiatric disturbance, but will not be actively involved in treatment until the person is stable. We do not assess people with a BMI >35.
