Inpatient and daypatient eating disorder services
Inpatient treatment is available for people who at high medical or psychiatric risk and those who are motivated to make changes but have been unable to do so during outpatient treatment.
We have 14 inpatient beds for local and national patients. Occasionally it is also necessary to provide admission for those experiencing such high levels of social adversity that treatment in the community is not possible.
If admission is indicated, patients and their carers are offered the opportunity to visit the unit and to meet with in-patient staff for an introduction to the unit and preparation for admission. On admission a keyworker from the nursing team is allocated to each patient, this keyworker will remain the same until patient discharge. They will meet weekly with the patient and co-ordinate their care. An initial Care Programme Approach meeting is organised soon after admission to begin the process of discharge planning and liaison with relevant aftercare services.
The service provides specialist daypatient care where people can visit the unit for a day of treatment, therapy and activities. They return home in the evening.
