HOPE are NHS Parliamentary Award WINNERS!

Ground-breaking eating disorder provider collaborative awarded Excellence in Mental Health at the NHS Parliamentary Awards 2022

HOPE (Healthy Outcomes for People with Eating disorders) Adult Eating Disorder Collaborative has been named the national winner of the Excellence in Mental Health Award at today’s prestigious NHS Parliamentary Awards 2022.

In an already impressive feat, the collaborative had already scooped the backing of an incredible 13 MPs from across the South East and South West, including former Prime Minister Theresa May, to be crowned regional winners.

But it was not until today’s gala awards ceremony at Westminster that Team HOPE learned they had been crowned the national winners for mental health care excellence for their revolutionary approach to treating patients with an eating disorder.

Their compassionate treatment model means that people battling with an ED — which has the highest mortality rate of any serious mental NHS Parliamentary Award judges heard that by focusing on the patient and their wider circumstances, the collaborative’s approach enables people to recover and thrive close to their home, friends, family and as part of their community.

The judges said: “The results are hugely impressive, illness — achieve weight restoration quicker and spend less time on inpatient wards and it also means readmission rates have been slashed by 75%.

Members of the collaborative were joined by former ED patient Dr Lorna Collins who gave personal testimony helping far more people maintain healthy weights and leading to far fewer hospital readmissions than traditional treatments. It truly is a ‘hope programme’.”

Chief Executive of Oxford Health Dr Nick Broughton said: “A huge congratulations to our HOPE provider collaborative and our incredible colleagues at Oxford Health and our partner organisations who have worked so very hard to care for people with an eating disorder. HOPE really is about bringing hope to people experiencing what we know is an extremely challenging condition and this win is a testament to that spirit.” for the nomination. Now fully recovered, Lorna has become an ambassador for the Oxford approach to treatment, speaking at TedX talks and writing columns in national newspapers and her recovery.

HOPE adapted NICE approved Cognitive Behavioural Therapy Eating disorder (CBTE) treatment into Integrated CBTE (I-CBTE), an innovative approach combining a time limited, planned admission of 13 weeks, with the goal of full weight restoration, seven weeks’ day treatment and ongoing outpatient CBTE. The treatment model was co-designed and co-produced by a multi-disciplinary team along with patients, families and carers who considered every aspect, from the way eating food in the dining room happens right through to patients developing their own formulation and, in essence, becoming their own therapists.

Of 120 I-CBTE patients who took part 70% maintained healthy weight without binging or purging compared to just 5% of patients receiving traditional treatment after one year.

Only 14% of patients receiving I-CBTE were readmitted to hospital compared to 60% of patients receiving traditional treatment.

The model is endorsed by NICE, and Royal College of Psychiatrists and is supported by NHS England SE and SW, the provider collaborative and partners. It has been showcased widely and is expected to be implemented by other services nationally and internationally.
