Yorkshire and the Humber Clinical Networks, Patient Story

rnrn

We are very pleased to share with you a short film about Lou’s experiences of having an eating disorder and the treatment received throughout the illness; Lou’s story is a powerful example of the impact of body image and eating disorders throughout the lifespan. Lou’s story highlights the importance and value that can be added to service development by involving service users, who can give valuable insight as a patient into eating disorders, as well as a service user perspective of eating disorder services, and as such can contribute to improved patient and carer experience.

rnrn

If you are based in Yorkshire and the Humber and would like support with involving service users in service development please contact the Clinical Networks Mental Health team on ENGLAND.YHSCN@nhs.net.
