The New NICE Quality Standard for Eating Disorders was released on 21st September 2018

The Quality Statements focus on:

Statement 1 People with suspected eating disorders who are referred to an eating disorder service start assessment and treatment within 4 weeks for children and young people or a locally agreed timeframe for adults.
Statement 2 People with eating disorders have a discussion with a healthcare professional about their options for psychological treatment.
Statement 3 People with binge eating disorder participate in a guided self-help programme as first-line psychological treatment.
Statement 4 Children and young people with bulimia nervosa are offered bulimia-nervosa-focused family therapy (FT-BN).
Statement 5 People with eating disorders who are being supported by more than one service have a care plan that explains how the services will work together.
Statement 6 People with eating disorders who are moving between services have their risks assessed.

Discussing these statements Dr Dasha Nicholls, Consultant Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist said: “Eating disorders can be absolutely devastating for people and their families. If left without clinical attention, a person’s condition has a tendency to become worse and harder to treat. We know people with eating disorders have better recovery rates when they receive early treatment and it is essential to have prompt assessment and referral schemes in place to help people get seen quickly. We are very excited to include a statement in the NICE quality standard emphasising this need to get children and adults seen by specialists as soon as possible and to recommend a suitable timeframe.”  NICE 21 September 2018

This conference focuses on effective implementation and adherence to the New NICE Quality Standard for Eating Disorders published in September 2018. The quality standard covers assessment, treatment, monitoring and care for children, young people and adults with an eating disorder. It describes high-quality care in priority areas for improvement. Attending this event will give you the opportunity to hear practical advice and tips on implementing changes to your service to ensure compliance with the new NICE Quality Standard for Eating Disorders.

The recent Parliamentary and Health Service Ombudsman report ‘Ignoring the Alarms: how eating disorder services are failing Patients’ recommended that the Department of Health and NHS England should review the existing quality and availability of adult eating disorder services to achieve parity with child and adolescent services. Dr Bill Kirkup Author of the report stated that ‘ I hope this report will act as a wake-up call to the NHS and health leaders to make urgent improvements to services for eating disorders so that we can avoid similar tragedies in the future’.
