Job responsibilities

Eating Disorders are extraordinarily complex illnesses that present with abnormalities in physical and psychological functioning. The physical complications have the potential to cause permanent damage and in some cases are life threatening. The causes are complex and multi-factorial, including genetic, neuro-developmental and environmental influences. They require a comprehensive treatment programme including medical, psychiatric, psychological, social and educational interventions.

Ellern Mede offers three treatment programmes for patients – a Recovery Unit, a High Dependency Unit (HDU) and separate facilities for those patients beyond their 18th birthday who are preparing for discharge. We aim to stabilise patients physical and psychological states as rapidly as possible for transfer to step down service. The HDU admits patients whose illness requires more intense levels of clinical involvement and nursing. The service is able to admit patients requiring treatment under mental health legislation. We aim to improve the patients health and dependency needs sufficiently for transfer to a regular eating disorder unit or to the community.
