Eating Disorders guidance for professionals

Healthy London Partnership has worked with a number of partners to produce practical guidelines to help professionals working with children and young people to recognise early signs of eating disorders. Find guidelines for professionals working in education, primary care and the voluntary and community sector (VCSE) below.

Voluntary and community sector professionals (VCSE)

Healthy London Partnership in partnership with Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, have launched new eating disorder guidelines for voluntary and community sector professionals. The guidelines share advice about spotting the signs of eating disorders and when to refer children and young people to the community eating disorders service for specialist support.

Primary care and education professionals

Healthy London Partnership in partnership with Beat, the UK’s eating disorder charity, has developed updated eating disorder guidelines for primary care and education professionals.

The guidelines share advice about spotting the signs of eating disorders and when to refer children and young people to the community eating disorders service for specialist support. They have been endorsed by Dr Tom Coffey OBE GP, Clinical Lead for Mental Health and Children’s Services at Wandsworth CCG and Mayoral Health Advisor.

 

Guidelines for education professionals were launched in March 2020 and have since been updated to support professionals working in schools and colleges across London to increase knowledge and understanding of eating disorders and symptoms and to put a stop to myths.
