PRIVATE IN PATIENT ENQUIRIES:
Ellern Mede is able to offer private inpatient eating disorder intensive treatment. However places are limited. Please also note that whilst we are recognised by most medical insurers, few policies will cover the full cost of private inpatient care. In the UK, we do recommend families seek public funding for eating disorder treatment first.
PRIVATE OUTPATIENT ENQUIRIES
We are able to offer comprehensive multi-disciplinary specialist therapies for eating disorders to people aged 12 to 25. Our treatment is collaborative with your usual primary care provider. We offer a range of treatment modalities – online, face-to-face, sessional, in-home treatment and day treatment. Every programme of therapy is individual. We are recognised by medical insurers and you are able to self-pay. We are able to accept patients from anywhere in the UK or internationally. Please enquire by filling out the enquiry form below.
Private Enquiry Form
Our inpatient services are for young people aged 8 – 18 and 18 – 25. We take both NHS and Private Referrals. Our Outpatient service is for ages 12 – 25.
Our inpatient service includes high dependency for severe eating disorder cases as well as less severe patients. We have two hospitals in London, one in Rotherham and one in Derbyshire. Three of our hospitals have wards for young people over 18 where CCG funding needs to be pre-arranged. Our Outpatient service is for early stage non-critical eating disorder cases and is private self-pay or insurance-funded only.
