As you know, this series of the podcast is taking a look at eating disorder provision in the UK and the last 12 months under the shadow of the COVID pandemic has been a challenge to say the least – both in terms of service provision but also in terms of how families and those with eating disorders have had to adapt to manage their illness. We’ve seen lots in the media about the impact of COVID on those with eating disorders and how services have had to change the way they deliver services.. and lots of reports use words such as ‘devastating’ and ‘dangerous’ to describe what’s happening.. but a ..read more

EDIP-S3 EP1 – Are services gridlocked, overstretched and poorly trained?
Eating Disorder Insights Podcast

The last few weeks have been a total eye opener for me. I’m a clinician in the NHS. I have worked in NHS specialist eating disorder teams in the UK and I’m proud of what my teams have done to help families to understand, take charge and recover from this vile and dangerous illness.

We get praise and gratitude from the families that we help, we see lives that were stuck in fragmented chaos slowly return to normal and we use research and studies to ..read more
