Rhodes Farm Clinic - Eating Disorders
Over the past 14 years we have treated over 750 patients. We accept children from 8 - 18 years of age suffering from a range of eating disorders. The current daily rate is £345. With effect from 1st September 2007 our daily rate will be £355. We are also happy to take on children with eating disorders who have associated problems such as school refusal or OCD.
We accept the most difficult of patients and have built a team of nurses extremely skilled in feeding anorexic and other under-weight children. We rarely resort to naso-gastric feeding.''All our patients on weight gain programmes gain a steady and uninterrupted 1kg per week.''We set a discharge date on the day of admission and achieve it in 83% of cases.
Our stays are based on one week per kilo to target weight (98% of weight-height ratio) and two weeks to stabilise before discharge.''
Only when there are other significant difficulties, such as OCD or unresolved family problems do we fail to discharge the children on the predicted date.''We have recently introduced a new six week residential programme to treat childhood obesity and are able to accept children whose physical or psychological health is deemed to be at risk. This programme includes family therapy/counselling sessions, healthy eating advice for the child and parents, an exercise programme which can continued to be followed at home and weekly follow up until the child reaches their target weight.
