The Eating Disorder Service provides community based help and support to adults who suffer from severe and complex eating disorders.
As a Specialist Outpatient Service, we aim to make sure that people with eating disorders receive the most appropriate clinical help when they need it most.
This service is available to people living in Belfast and the South Eastern Trust area and is taking a lead in developing a Regional Eating Disorder Care Network across the whole of Northern Ireland.
How to access the Service
At present, all referrals are to be made through a Consultant Psychiatrist.
Members of the Public:
Talk to your GP. A GP can refer patients on to the Consultant Psychiatrist, who in turn will contact the Eating Disorder Service.
Other healthcare professionals:
Hospital doctors encountering patients with eating disorders in outpatient settings should consider arranging for that person to be referred to the Community Mental Health Team if it is felt that further psychiatric intervention is necessary.
Occasionally patients with severe eating disorders, who are not known to psychiatric services, are admitted to general medical wards due to severe physical risk. In these cases, the Eating Disorder Service may be contacted for advice via the Hospital Liaison Psychiatry Service or the local Community Mental Health Team.
