Community Eating Disorders Services (CEDS) events

In July 2015, the Community Eating Disorder Services Access and Waiting Time Standards for Children and Young People’s Services (CEDS AWTS for CYPS) were published. The publication of these standards heralded a change in how services were delivered and funded within CYPS, aligning with the CYPS transformation set out in the government’s policy ‘Future in Mind’ . Funding for the enhanced provision was allocated to CCGs for the commissioning of services in line with the requirements and standards set in the document. A key element within the document is the reporting of progress to NHS England by provider trusts via quarterly data submissions with Key Performance Indicators.

In partnership with national experts, the Clinical Network runs a series of CEDS events to ensure all partners within the system, including commissioners and providers, are aligned and hold a shared understanding of the work required to improve access and waiting time standards and CEDS more generally. To date, we have run four CEDS events on a quarterly basis, and are currently planning a ‘CEDS5’.
