Humber NHS Foundation Trust is inviting health professionals, those working in education along with members of the public to attend the launch of a new CAMHS eating disorders service on Wednesday 1st March.
The drop-in event will run from 10.30am – 5pm at Beverley Racecourse and will provide people with an opportunity to find out more about the service along with information from a range of associated services and specialities including paediatric inpatients and dietetics. There will also be an opportunity to find out more about how to refer into the service and the chance to meet the team.
The Service Manager for East Riding Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services, Nikki Titchener said: “We are delighted to be launching this new service and we are sure it will be hugely beneficial to those who access it.
The invitation to attend this launch and find out more about the service is not only to health and social care professionals working with young people, but also to staff working in schools, such as PE teachers and those involved in pastoral care. We also hope that members of the public will take the opportunity to come along and find out more about what we do and how to access the service.”
The new service will be based at Beverley Health Centre and will cover both Hull and the East Riding. People can access the service either by seeking a referral through their GP or they can self-refer by completing an online referral form or contacting the service directly.
The service will offer support from a range of professionals including a psychologist and a psychiatrist, a dietician, and a team of nurses, with support provided to both service users and their families.
