Experiences of health and social care services for people with eating disorders.

Eating Disorder Report

Following the engagement session at the First Steps All Ages Recovery and Self Help Group, it was agreed that the experiences maybe more powerful if presented together rather than using the usual information sharing protocols used by Healthwatch Derbyshire.

Also, many areas mentioned by the participants did not relate to specific services and were of a more general nature. It was felt that it would be useful to share the information with all health and care commissioners and relevant service providers.

Participants at the engagement sessions were not asked specific questions, but instead were invited to talk more generally about their experiences of getting a diagnosis of their condition, support from health professionals, accessing treatment and accessing other forms of support, including support groups.

The purpose of this report is to highlight the themes and trends that emerged during the engagement activity and present individuals comments.
