Inpatient Unit for the North of Scotland

This is a 10 bed inpatient unit for the treatment of patients with eating disorders for the North of Scotland i.e. to take patients from Tayside, Grampian, Highland, Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles. The in-patient unit will operate alongside a 4 place day patient facility for Grampian patients, which will help facilitate rehabilitation and make re-admission less likely.

Referral Criteria & Process

Referrals are from Consultant Psychiatrists in Eating Disorders from the Specialist Eating Disorders Outpatient Services in the North of Scotland MCN for Eating Disorders. We take referrals not only locally from Aberdeen and wider Grampian but also from Tayside, Highland, Orkney, Shetland and the Western Isles. We have close links with specialist outpatient eating disorder services and general adult mental health services in all of our partner areas.

Experience

The multidisciplinary team includes 20 nursing staff, a dietician, occupational therapist, a physiotherapist and an art psychotherapist.
