HSJ Awards 2016 - Compassionate patient care

Hertfordshire Partnership University Foundation Trust - Hospitals at home: CAMHS eating disorder service

A two-day course was created to teach parents skills to help their children overcome eating disorders. A range of creative tools were developed to help patients, such as recovery playlists and vision boards.

Demand on Child and Adolescent Mental Health Services (CAMHS) clinics was reduced and funding was increased to develop the eating disorder service.

Judges said the scheme “feels very person centred” and “really focused on prevention and early intervention”.
