Community Eating Disorder Service

The Rotherham Doncaster and South Humber NHS Foundation Trust’s Community Eating Disorder Service (CEDS) offers support to children, young people and their families who are experiencing moderate to severe eating disorders.

The service provides community treatment in accordance with the National Institute of Health and Care Excellence guidelines for children and young people up to the age of 19 with a clinical diagnosis of an eating disorder.

We have specialist knowledge in working with children and young people who have an eating disorder and works closely with local health services and other agencies. Our multi-disciplinary team is made up of dedicated health professionals including specialist nurses, cognitive behavioural therapists, family therapists, dieticians, psychologists and psychiatrists who offer assessment and treatment in a variety of community settings as well as specialist consultation and advice for professionals.

We provide early intervention, timely assessments and evidence-based individualised care to everyone requiring support from our service. We see:

  • Emergency cases with 24 hours
  • Urgent cases within 7 days
  • Routine cases within 4 weeks.

We work in partnership with SYEDA who will deliver education and awareness raising sessions for young people, their parents and professionals.

The Community Eating Disorder Service is available in Doncaster, North Lincolnshire and Rotherham.
