The Eating disorder service (EDS) was established in 2004. It is part of the Adult division within CPFT. It offers treatment for patients age 18 years and older with moderate to severe eating disorders registered with GP practices in the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough CCG.

The service has been allocated transformation funding to develop into a comprehensive leading-edge service. We hope to minimise obstacles in accessing treatment; accepting self-referrals and treat patients rapidly and safely. Our new treatment pathways include and early intervention pathway, a high-risk pathway that includes medical monitoring and a quality of life pathway for patients with severe and enduring eating disorders.

Opportunities to develop skills will include
