Royal Free

The service aims to help young people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or atypical variations of these disorders to recover fully in the community.

St Ann's Eating Disorders Service

A national specialist service providing out-patient and specialist in-patient care (Phoenix Unit), including day care (Russell Unit) and community liaison service.

Tavistock and Portman Trust

Not a specific eating-disorder service for adolescents and young adults as such, although they do see patients who have difficulties with eating. However, unlike St Ann’s and the RFH, they are not able to provide the medical management for patients with eating disorders. Do provide specialist psychoanalytic therapies service for young people between 14 and 25.
