Cheshire and Merseyside Adolescent Eating Disorder Service (CHEDS)

The Cheshire and Merseyside Adolescent Eating Disorder Service (CHEDS) is a specialist outpatient team that offers assessment, treatment and support to young people aged 13-18 with a broad range of complex eating disorders like anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder or atypical eating disorders. We are based in Chester and we support people to keep well in the community without needing admission to hospital.

Referrals are currently accepted from Children and Young People’s Mental Health Services across Cheshire and Merseyside, including CWP Spoke teams based in Wirral, Chester, Crewe, Winsford and Macclesfield. In order to be assessed by CHEDS, your child must first be receiving treatment from one of the CWP/Merseycare teams.
