We offer a relaxed and positive atmosphere for patients in a setting that is less intrusive. If you think discuss with our team about a child or young person who you feel may benefit from our services please contact us.

Training for health professionals

We provide training about eating disorders to a range of health professionals, including how to spot them, how to help manage them and education on their causes and symptoms. If you want to know more about the training we can offer you as a health professional or want to make a referral about a child or young person you think has an eating disorder, then please contact us to talk to a member of our team.

Multidisciplinary approach

We provide a multidisciplinary approach to eating disorders that is effective and evidence based. Our service is setup to provide patients with the best possible results. By working together within The Bridge and communicating with other health professionals, we ensure the child or young person will get the best treatment and support they need. Working together minimises waiting times for services, families and education settings. Our team is available when needed, ensuring effective referrals.

Communication

Increasing communication between professions and professionals encourages the sharing of knowledge and good practice. Learning from each other and knowing when to refer or train someone within eating disorders could reduce the number of patients who die from eating disorders and/or don't recover.

Our team can provide professional development workshops and training from our mental health nurses, dietitians and psychologists through workshops and events. We deliver bespoke training on all areas of eating disorders that you or your team may be interested in. if you’re interested in what training we offer please, contact us.
