Training and Education

Oxford Health’s eating disorder service TEDS for children and young people in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire has achieved the Quality Network for Community CAMHS – Eating Disorders accreditation (QNCC-ED) with the Royal College of Psychiatrists.

Head of Service James Fortune said:

“Obtaining this prestigious national recognition is a testament to the hard work and dedication of staff working in The Eating Disorder Service. It evidences the high quality of services for children and young people in Bath and North East Somerset, Swindon and Wiltshire, provided by Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust.”

The QNCC service standards were launched in 2005 to encourage quality and consistency between services as well as raising the standards of care. Accreditation requires thorough standards and evidence to be met and approved by an Accreditation Panel. They scrutinise nine key service domains ranging from access to care to multi agency working, staffing, infrastructure and commissioning.

TEDS are joint second, in the history of accreditation, to achieve accreditation out of the 28 eating disorder services registered. Data Quality Improvement Lead Leanne Mcilhinney said:

“The TEDS team have worked extremely hard to achieve accreditation by constantly reviewing and improving quality standards with the ultimate passion and enthusiasm to provide young people with the best care possible.”
