The Specialist Eating Disorder Team is delighted to be part of the FREED (First episode Rapid Early intervention for Eating Disorders) network. Becoming part of this network means we join seven other UK eating disorder services and ensures that we will continue to provide innovative, evidence-based treatment to support early intervention in eating disorders for young people up to the age of 25.
FREED was developed and piloted at the Maudsley Eating Disorders Service, South London and Maudsley NHS Foundation Trust (SLaM) before being extended to additional sites around the UK. The network continues to be coordinated by the FREED team at the Maudsley Eating Disorders Service, SLaM.
Our Specialist Eating Disorder team is very proud of the service that we offer, which enables self-referrals, fast access to assessment and treatment, telephone assessments and individualised care and treatment plans.
