unstar this property answer text <p>This information is not held centrally.</p><p> </p><p>Specialist in-patient eating disorder services for people aged over 18 are commissioned by NHS England. Specialist community services for people aged over 18 with eating disorders are commissioned by clinical commissioning groups (CCGs). NHS England does not hold information about all of the specific services commissioned by individual CCGs.</p><p> </p><p>We know that early intervention is vital and can prevent problems continuing into adulthood, that is why in 2015 the Government introduced waiting time targets to improve access to eating disorder services for children and young people.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is also investing £150 million to expand eating disorder community-based care and as a result 70 dedicated new or extended community services are now either open or in development. This means at least 3,350 children and young people a year will receive swift, effective eating disorder treatment in the community.</p> more like this
