Eating Disorders Specialists

Ellern Mede values people. We employ many specialists in their respective fields and train continuously in the unique Ellern Mede approach to treating young people with eating disorders. Our multidisciplinary teams (MDTs) work closely together. They are supported by skilled nurses and healthcare assistants as well as many related specialists in administration and management. Separately, our young people receive an Ofsted outstanding education from our hospital schools.

Ellern Mede’s focus has always been on young people with a primary diagnosis of eating disorder. We also specialise in treating all the associated conditions that each patient may have alongside that diagnosis.

We have an excellent record of helping patients achieve a better quality of life.
