Adult Eating Disorders
Care and treatment is provided for people aged 18 years and above with a primary diagnosis of an eating disorder such as Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa and Binge Eating Disorder. Team members have been working together to implement an agreed, consistent community adult primary care eating disorder (AED) service model, aligned to the agreed North Central London Integrated care system (NCL ICS) principles of Community Mental Health Transformation (CMHT).
The pathway will also meet standard needs and requirements outlined by NHS England’s guidelines.This has included:
• Ensuring appropriate Experts by Experience (EbE’s) were fully involved in the development process.
• Minimising barriers to access, for example Body Mass Index (BMI) or weight thresholds.
• Offering early intervention models for testing and implementing once agreed.
• Working towards having clear arrangements in place with primary care for medical monitoring.
