What we do

The London Adult Eating Disorder Programme is focused on making sure that everyone with an eating disorder in London can access the care they need, when they need it. We work with NHS stakeholders to reduce waiting times for patients accessing services and to make sure that clinicians are empowered to spot and treat eating disorders early, especially in typically underserved groups. This includes men, whose symptoms can often go unnoticed by those around them.  

Our hard working, passionate, and dedicated eating disorder leads from across London meet every six weeks to support each other make meaningful, positive changes to support Londoners living with eating disorders. We are also extremely lucky and privileged to be supported by our colleagues with lived experience who are equally passionate about creating change and using their expertise to help services reflect and adapt.

Raising public awareness of eating disorders is crucial to achieving our goal, but we’re also working closely with services across London to make sure that when people do come forward for help, they’re met with compassion and consistently high-quality care. We also want to make sure that people are able to access high quality support, no matter where they are. If we know that one area in London is doing exceptional work, we want to make sure this is replicated across other services.
