Service description

Our service helps adults aged 18 and over who have eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and other diagnosable eating disorders.

We offer an outpatient service for patients from Leicester, Leicestershire and Rutland and a regional inpatient service for the East Midlands.

If you are worried about yourself or a loved one please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page on our website for advice.

Once a referral has been received by us, it will be triaged and if appropriate, you will be contacted to make an appointment for assessment. Following assessment you may be signposted to other services, offered individual or group therapy or inpatient treatment, depending on your needs. We work with you to achieve your goals in recovering from your eating disorder.

Our service works in accordance with national guidance for the management of eating disorders set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).
