The current outpatient Child & Adolescent Eating Disorders Service has developed a unique and innovative Intensive Service. The Intensive Service currently offers the following services for young people diagnosed with an eating disorder and their families/carers:
- outpatient and day patient treatment;
- facilitation / support for paediatric inpatient treatment for medical stabilisation and psychiatric emergencies;
- outreach and in-reach treatment.
The Intensive Service utilises both face-to-face and remote working to offer a range of group, individual and family-based therapies, as well as offering time to enable the young person to continue their education. The Intensive Service provides a unique opportunity to be involved in this developing modality of treatment, which provides seamless care for patients and their families/carers. The Intensive Service aims to promote faster recovery, reduce relapse rates, and avoid protracted Tier 4 residential admissions.
