Eating disorders are common in adolescence. If they are detected early and there is access to specialist treatment the prognosis is very good. However, if left untreated, or treated inadequately, the disorder can become chronic and difficult to treat. Many adults with long term eating disorders developed their initial symptoms in the adolescent years. This service will provide easy access for patients where an eating disorder is suspected.
