Eating Disorders Outpatient Clinic
What we do
Our Eating Disorders Outpatient Clinic provides treatment and support for people newly referred to the Eating Disorders Program, as well as those that have accessed it over a period of time. Consultant psychiatrists, a psychiatry registrar and dietitian see patients for regular sessions. There is a limited group program.
Depending upon the person's physical and psychological health, they may remain an outpatient of the Eating Disorders Program (although note that it is not possible to have indefinite treatment), require more intensive treatment by joining the Day Patient Program or be admitted for an inpatient stay.
The service aims to have patients linked to private therapists, local Area Mental Health Services and General Practitioners (GPs) for ongoing care.
