We are a mental health team made up of nursing, psychological and psychiatric health professionals.
We work together in order to provide assessment and excellent care for anyone with eating disorders - including anorexia nervosa and bulimia nervosa. We endeavour to provide high quality care.
We operate an outpatient service where patients are required to attend their appointments at the Mandala Centre on Gregory Boulevard, Nottingham.
We offer services to any adult (18 years or over) who experiences difficulties with eating. Our patients are referred by GPs or other psychiatric services.
After we receive your referral, there will be a discussion between the different professionals in our team about how best to help you.
After that, you may be offered an assessment with one of our qualified Health Professionals. This will help us to find out about your current difficulties, your past and family history. This usually takes around an hour.
If we feel that your needs can best supported by our service, we have a selection of clinician interventions. These usually start with a psycho-education group to begin your treatment journey. Your specific needs and treatment will be discussed with you following assessment.
We will be happy to talk through any concerns or questions that you have.
We are still seeing some patients face to face for assessment and treatment but mostly we are offering assessment and appointments over MS Teams. If you do come into the clinic for an assessment you can choose to bring a family member, advocate or friend with you to the first appointment. However, we usually encourage you to meet us by yourself at some stage during the assessment.
