Trust chair opens new eating disorder service HQ
27 October 2015

The Norfolk Community Eating Disorder Service unveiled its new headquarters to the public on Monday, 26 October.

CPFT chair Julie Spence conducted the opening ceremony at the service’s new base - The Springs, Aslake Close, Sprowston, Norwich, NR7 8ET - where people were invited to take a tour of the new building and meet the team who help scores of service-users every year.

The service, which is run by the Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, was previously located in Cathedral Street, Norwich. The move will see the service enjoy a more modern, bigger space in which to provide care.

Service Manager Caroline Nightingale said: “This move to a new building will be beneficial to service users and to staff. While we enjoyed being in Cathedral Street it became less practical as the service grew.

“Moving to The Springs gives us the space our service and staff require, with excellent transport links and plenty of parking.

“We have been informing patients and our stakeholders for some time about the move. We are very proud of the service and we believe this is another important step in improving the care and support we offer.”

The Norfolk Community Eating Disorder Service is available to adults over the age of 18 and helps people with a range of conditions as well as offering support to their family, friends and carers.
