All-age eating disorders

This Clinical Reference Group (CRG) covers mental health services for people with eating disorders.

The group will be a Transform CRG as eating disorders are a major NHS England priority area, with transformation across the whole pathway and integration of services between Provider Collaboratives and integrated care systems required, additionally this CRG will cover all-ages and span the whole pathway.

The group will be actively engaged with and advise on key areas of change for eating disorders, it will be constituted accordingly, and clinical leadership will be provided by a national speciality advisor.




A key part of the CRG’s work is the delivery of the ‘products’ of commissioning. These are the tools used by the 10 Hub Commissioning Teams to contract services on an annual basis.

The following service specifications fall within the scope of this CRG:
