How our service can help you
We are specialist child and adolescent mental health that who support children and young people up to the age of 18 years old experiencing moderate to severe eating disorders.
Our team includes consultant psychiatrists, clinical psychologists, nurses and social workers, family therapists, dietitians and administrators. The service has focused on delivering timely access to assessment and evidence-based treatment for children and young people with anorexia nervosa and moderate to severe bulimia and binge eating disorder.
We offer specialist, family based approaches, such as cognitive behavioural therapy, cognitive analytical therapy, motivational interviewing and guided self-help. In addition, we are expanding to include an intensive home meal support provision to allow children and young people to remain in the community for treatment and avoid or delay admission to specialist units and acute hospitals.
Treatment involves specialist eating disorder assessment and participation in planned treatment programmes, including individual work, family work, family meals and support around managing difficulties linked with eating linked to specialist dietetic input.
We have an open, co-operative and supportive approach, agreeing treatment goals and care plans at each stage. We see people virtually and face to face in our clinics.
The team is looking at outcomes of national Avoidant Restrictive Food Intake Disorder pilots sites to see how we can promote access to specialists interventions for child and young people with this eating disorder.
Our multi-disciplinary community team also works closely with education, social services, other health and CAMHS teams , as well as advice, joint working and training with other professionals.

A carer is anyone, including children and adults who looks after a family member, partner or friend who needs help because of their illness, frailty, disability, a mental health problem or an addiction and cannot cope without their support. The care they give is unpaid.
At Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Foundation Trust, we value the often life-long support carers provide and recognise them as equal care partners. We want to offer as much guidance and reassurance as possible, to help you in your caring role.
