Community Eating Disorder Service (MFT CEDS)

Manchester University NHS Foundation Trust’s community eating disorder service provides specialist care and support for children, young people, and their families or carers, up until the age of 18. We accept referrals for anyone whose GP is in Manchester, Salford and Trafford. If you are over the age of 18, please speak to your GP.

We provide specialist, evidence-based therapeutic interventions (both individually and for families), as well as physical health monitoring to support children and young people in their recovery from an eating disorder.
Our multi-disciplinary team includes psychiatrists, family therapists, specialist dieticians, eating disorder practitioners, paediatric doctors and nurses, clinical support workers and admin staff. We see our children and young people in a variety of settings along their journey; be that at home or in hospital, at one of our clinic bases or in school. We aim to ensure the earliest, most effective intervention is offered.

We have a number of clinic bases at which we see our young people:

  • Central Manchester – The Harrington Building and The Winnicott Centre (Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Oxford Road, Manchester)
