Royal Free's specialist eating disorders service covers six North London Boroughs, comprising a team of experienced multidisciplinary staff. The service aims to help young people with anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa or atypical variations of these disorders, to recover fully in the community and avoid unnecessary inpatient admissions.

Outpatient treatment includes family, group, and individual evidence-based treatment approaches. For more unwell patients, the Eating Disorders Intensive Service (EDIS) offers the full range of outpatient and day treatments at a higher intensity, including medical stabilisation, and school and home-based work.
