Norfolk Community Eating Disorders Service (NCEDS) (Norfolk and Waveney ICB)

The Community Eating Disorder Service (NCEDS) is available across the NHS Norfolk and Waveney area, and cares for patients aged 18 or over who present with moderate to severe symptoms of eating disorder i.e. other than those that can be managed in Primary Care. The service offers assessment and treatment plans based on a clinical, evidence-based approach, compliant with NICE guidelines and advice. Patients are treated by a multi-displinary team which includes specialist psychiatry, psychology, occupational therapists, dieticians, support workers, and nurses.

In addition to the core psychological service, the team offers a FREED early intervention pathway for young people aged 18-25 with a diagnosis of an eating disorder with less than three years duration, providing specialist evidence-based treatment and support tailored to their needs.
The service also offers an intensive community support pathway with the aim of preventing hospital admission, facilitating early discharge from hospital, and providing intensive support in the home environment for a limited time period.

Interpretation and translation services can be arranged by staff, for users of this service.
