- Day patient treatment: patients can visit the unit for a day of treatment, therapy and activities. They return home in the evening.
- Inpatient treatment: we have 14 bedrooms for patients to stay at the unit while they receive treatment.
- Outpatient treatment: patients attend appointments at the unit.
We provide integrated nutritional, medical and psychological care for people with severe eating disorders, such as anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and other eating disorders.
Care is delivered by a multidisciplinary team, including psychiatrists, nurses, cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) and cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) therapists, occupational therapists, dietetics, physiotherapy and family therapist.
Care is provided in three main packages:
The group treatment programme is seen as a core component of eating disorders care and is available to all day and inpatients. Groups are designed to target maintaining factors for eating disorders, and to meet the diverse needs of the patient group. Patients are encouraged to take an active role in attending and developing the group programme.
All inpatients and day patients are offered a choice of specialist individual cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) or cognitive analytic therapy (CAT) for eating disorders.
Read our information sheets for more information about the therapy and medication available to patients at Vincent Square.
Patient choice of therapy is guided by evidence based information about specialist therapies and a shared understanding of the clinical assessment. Continuity of therapist is also provided across inpatient, day-patient and outpatient treatment to help patients continue to assist with step-down care following admission.
The therapy models offered are evidence-based approaches to eating disorders treatment, adapted for the specialised needs of inpatient and day patients when necessary. The service monitors the outcomes of therapies, as well as patient satisfaction.
All therapists are supervised by leading experts in CBT and CAT for eating disorders. The strength of the therapist team is demonstrated by the fact that most of that team have been involved in presenting skills-based clinical workshops at national and international conferences and training events. Clinical audit data demonstrates outcomes of a standard reported in published trials.
