What do carers need to know to ensure their loved ones have comprehensive medical care for a severe eating disorder?

Physical health monitoring forms an integral aspect of eating disorder treatment and early detection. Prof Paul Robinson will share updates from the new MaRSiPAN (Management of Really Sick Patients with Anorexia Nervosa) guidance and will highlight information for carers emphasizing how to avoid serious consequences in eating disorder treatment. Jess Griffiths will discuss training being developed by BEAT (commissioned by HEE) for primary care and will discuss carers perspectives on primary health. Dr Ceri Laird will share her story as a GP with lived experience (as a carer). She will outline some of the challenges she experienced in primary care whilst supporting her daughter through recovery.
