Health and social care research helps us learn about why we become ill and what we can do to stay well. It advances our knowledge so that we can find new treatments, change the way we deliver care, prevent illness and improve the environment, health and wellbeing of local populations.
We support research that benefits people who use our services and the communities we serve. We have studies for children and young people, dementia, substance misuse, eating disorders, learning disabilities and mental health.
It is estimated that 1.25 million people in the UK have an eating disorder. Anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any psychiatric condition, and all eating disorders severely affect a person's quality of life.
We are looking for participants to take part in the following eating disorder studies. If you have an eating disorder, or know someone who does and are interested in finding out more please get in touch with us.
