How we can help

Our service helps adults aged 18 or over who have eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder and other diagnosable eating disorders.

We offer an outpatient service for patients from Leicestershire and Rutland, and a regional inpatient service which serves the surrounding counties within the East Midlands region.

Our service works in accordance with national guidance for the management of eating disorders set out by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE).

If you are worried about yourself or a loved one please refer to our Frequently Asked Questions page for advice.

Family & Friends Support Group

We are pleased to say the service has begun a Family & Friends support group.

A group of parents have joined members of the team to provide a forum to

  • Meet others caring for a loved one with an eating disorder

  • Share experiences

  • Seek support and ask for advice

If you have a loved one under the care of the Leicestershire Adult Eating Disorder Service please feel free to come along.

More details of times, location and how to find more information can be found here.

Christmas Time

Christmas can be a difficult time for people suffering with an eating disorder and for those supporting loved ones or friends with an eating disorder. The service has produced a short information leaflet offering advice about how to support someone struggling with an eating disorder over the festive period.
