Located in the leafy Southside area of Glasgow, Priory Hospital Glasgow is one of the UK’s leading centres for mental health treatment. In partnership with the NHS, we provide care for those struggling with eating disorders such as:
- Anorexia nervosa
- Bulimia nervosa
- Binge eating disorder (BED)
Treatment through the NHS can only be arranged by public bodies, such as mental health trusts and clinical commissioners. If you would like to know more about the process for accessing treatment on the NHS, your first port of call will be to speak to your GP.
Priory’s private services can be accessed via self-pay, and you may also be able to also access treatment through private medical insurance. For more information, please visit the Priory Hospital Glasgow private services page.
Focus on Safety
Our absolute priority is to make sure we operate safe and effective services 24/7 and that all staff understand what is required of them to make that happen. Click here to read more.
Glasgow's approach to eating disorder treatment
Glasgow’s eating disorder unit is the largest specialist inpatient ward of its kind in the UK and due to the quality of its care, patients come for treatment from all over the UK. In May 2015, the unit was included in the Quality Network for Eating Disorders (QED) under the Royal College of Surgeon’s Accreditation for Inpatient Mental Health Services (AIMS).
We provide a number of different treatments and therapies including:
- Diary reviews
- Supervision groups
- Body image workshops
- Positive psychology
- Relapse prevention
- Meal preparation
- Active recovery
- Nutritional education
Sessions are designed to provide individuals with the coping strategies to recognise and, in time, overcome their condition.
Referrals and admissions
Patients engage in the NHS system who then refer in to us, either because they want our expertise or because they cannot get admitted to an inpatient bed in their area.
We admit patients with body mass indexes (BMIs) of 11 at times, however we assess every referral individually.
