“Eating disorders are serious mental health problems. They can have severe psychological, physical and social consequences. Children and young people with eating disorders often have other mental health problems (e.g. anxiety or depression) which also need to be treated in order to get the best outcomes. It is vital that children and young people with eating disorders and their families and carers can access effective help quickly. Offering evidence-based, high-quality care and support as soon as possible can improve recovery rates, lead to fewer relapses and reduce the need for inpatient admissions. The availability of dedicated community eating disorder services has been shown to improve outcomes and cost effectiveness.” NHS England

The National Eating Disorders Summit will focus on ensuring rapid early intervention for people with eating disorders, in line with the national waiting time standard,  and developing a gold standard service including dedicated community eating disorder services. Through national updates, lived experience and practical case studies the conference will also look at how you can implement the new National Standards for eating disorders as outlined in the five year forward view implementation plan published in July 2016

“By 2020/21, evidence-based community eating disorder services for children and young people will be in place in all areas, ensuring that 95% of children in need receive treatment within one week for urgent cases, and four weeks for routine cases…. Recent data suggest that acute admissions for eating disorders are rising and this objective will ensure evidence-based treatment at the earliest possible stage of the illness” NHS England July 2016

The conference will also address preventing relapse, commissioning effective eating disorder services and looking forward to the NICE Guidance on Eating Disorders: Recognition and Treatment which is due to be published in April 2017.
