New online eating disorder learning available for GPs and primary care clinicians

Rachel Gowland, 28 June 2022
Eating Disorders

Eating disorders are common and Anorexia Nervosa has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. However, people with eating disorders have better recovery rates and a reduced risk of relapse when they receive the right support as early as possible.

To support GPs and primary care clinicians in understanding and supporting people in all ages with an eating disorder, HEE has worked in partnership with experts by experience, NHS England and NHS Improvement and the charity Beat to launch online eating disorder learning.

The elearning compromises of 2 sessions that take approximately 30 to 40 minutes to complete, at the learner’s own pace. The elearning also includes an assessment framework and a GP appointment involving an eating disorder assessment role-play demonstration.

To find out more, visit the eating disorders elearning programme webpage.

Additional mental health learning can be found on HEE’s mental health webpage.
