Our Young People's Community Eating Disorder Service in Halton, Knowsley, St Helens and Warrington provides assessment, treatment and support for young people with eating disorders and their families. We deliver the service in partnership with St Helens and Knowsley Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and leading national eating disorder charity Beat.
Initial consultant-led multidisciplinary team (MDT) assessments will be held at Knowsley Resource and Recovery Centre at Whiston Hospital. Young people and families will then be able to attend their regular appointments with our team at a venue closer to home.
To meet the service referral criteria, patients must be 8 to 18 years old and live in Runcorn or Widnes. You can use the SCOFF questionnaire screening tool to help determine whether your patient would benefit from a referral to the service.
Referrals for patients with a suspected eating disorder should be directed via ereferral. We also accept self-referrals from service users and families via an electronic form on our website.
