Buckinghamshire Community Eating Disorder Service
The Buckinghamshire Community Eating Disorders Team has been established in its current form since 2005 to provide community support for adults with eating disorders, who need help and advice from our multidisciplinary team.
The team provides psychological assessment and therapy, dietetic advice, support & monitoring, and can help with shopping and meal planning depending on individual needs and decisions made during the initial assessment process.
The team will work alongside, and in collaboration with, existing health professionals to ensure that everyone involved is kept informed and up to date with diagnosis, treatment and progress.
We provide specialist assessment and treatment for adult patients with eating disorders, registered with a Buckinghamshire GP.
To ensure that we can offer individually tailored treatment packages that address both the physical and psychological aspects of an eating disorder our team consists of:
- Clinical & Counselling Psychologists
- Clinical Nurse Specialist
- Specialist Dietician
- Community Support Worker
- Consultant Psychiatrist
- Office Manager
Our team is based at the Whiteleaf Centre, Aylesbury and we are also able to offer some treatment at the Haleacre Unit in Amersham and The Valley Centre in High Wycombe. For individuals who need more intensive treatment we can provide inpatient or day patient treatment at our unit, Cotswold House at the Warneford Hospital in Oxford.
The team also provides additional services to other health professionals such as training and supervision. A regular Friends and Family Group is available to offer support, help and advice via our inpatient unit, Cotswold House, Oxford. Where individuals are referred from Child & Adolescent Services, we work closely to ensure a smooth transition, offering specific sessions to family members to help them understand how adult services work.
