Rharian Fields Care Approach – information for clinicians

Rharian Fields Care Approach – information for clinicians

Our Eating Disorder Service offers a multi-disciplinary and comprehensive provision to individuals suffering from complex eating disorders that require the assistance and support of a specialist service.

We provide specialist treatments determined by individual need, based on clinical expertise and good clinical practice, working to NICE guidelines (2004) and The Marsipan Report (2nd Edition, 2014).

Rharian Fields offer a service that not only maximises engagement and encourages choice in treatments to promote recovery but also improves quality of life and social functioning while developing positive coping strategies to prevent physical and psychological deterioration as well as preventing/assisting in the management of relapse.

We ensure a comprehensive assessment (specialist, psychological, and psychiatric) for all clients accepted into this specialist service. Assessment safeguards that health, social care, physical and risk needs are identified and acted upon and our resources are used to gain maximum benefit for the client.

We feel strongly that the client is an equal partner in the management of their eating disorder and we respect that they are the expert in their individual illness.
