The book is intended as a practical guide to setting up, staffing and running eating disorders services.

The guidance and advice given in this volume is based on the experience of the eating disorder service at the Royal Free, which does not have specialised beds, but which is nevertheless considered to offer one of the best services in the UK. Each element of the service is considered from referral, inpatient and outpatient treatment, service evaluation and multi-disciplinary teamworking. The book also discusses innovative approaches in treatment, including an evaluation of email Bulimia Therapy.
