Description

 

The East Midlands currently has one 15 bedded inpatient unit that caters for adults requiring an inpatient admission for Eating Disorders which is Langley Ward at The Bennion Centre, Glenfield Hospital in Leicester. This is not enough capacity to meet the needs of local patients as there has been an increase in Adult Eating Disorder admissions from an average of 20 in 18-19 to 25 in 19-20 to 30 a month 7 2020-21.
Any inpatient beds required over and above 15 are currently commissioned out of area. This can mean some patients are placed a considerable distance from home and leads to delays in admission and longer lengths of stay. The current arrangements present particular difficulties for patients considered to be complex/those with co-morbidities.
