Improving Access and Treatment for Eating Disorders: Towards Recovery

Thursday 17 October 2019
The Studio Conference Centre, Birmingham

Follow the conference on Twitter #EatingDisorders2019

This conference focuses on effective improving access and treatment for eating disorders, and embedding the NICE Quality Standard for Eating Disorders.

“Eating disorders have among the highest mortality rates of any mental illness, yet people’s chances of recovery are being subjected to a lottery and lives are at risk.” Andrew Radford Chief Executive Beat Beating Eating Disorders, 18th June 2019 

“One estimate of the numbers of people with eating disorders in the UK is between 600,000 and 725,000. An alternative estimate suggests the figure is 1.25 million.  Regardless of precise figures, it has been suggested that eating disorders may be one of the most common mental health problems. Accordingly the provision of effective treatment and services for people who have an eating disorder is a serious matter for society.” Ignoring the Alarms follow-up: Too many avoidable deaths from eating disorders, UK Parliament 18th June 2019
