Midland Health's paediatric eating disorder clinic is here to provide specialist support and bespoke treatment plans to help end your child’s suffering. From a safe and confidential environment, our qualified psychologists will carry out a thorough assessment, screening your child against a range of disorders to help give you a diagnosis. Once diagnosed, we will be with you every step of the way with a multidisciplinary approach to help address all the factors that may be manifesting in your child’s disorder.
We know only too well how difficult it can be for families who have concerns about their child’s eating tendencies. That is why our team is here to offer support and advice to the wider family too.
Our service for pediatric eating disorders is available for children aged 12 and above with a BMI of 15 or higher. Each child will undergo an assessment to determine their suitability for our program. If they are deemed unsuitable, this will be communicated after the initial appointment.
For younger children, eligibility will be considered individually. Please reach out to our team via email with your inquiry, and we will consult with one of our specialised dieticians to provide guidance.

If you have concerns about your child’s weight or eating habits, our healthcare professionals are here to help. Whether your child has been previously diagnosed or you are looking to get ahead of a potential problem, we can help you and your child understand the signs and symptoms, and, more importantly, why they are presenting themselves. If you have worries, do not hesitate to contact our team.
At our child eating disorder clinic, we are committed to providing comprehensive care that addresses the physical, psychological, and social needs of young individuals with eating disorders. Our approach focuses on empowering these individuals to develop the necessary skills and motivation to manage their eating habits, thoughts, and behaviours. This holistic approach aims to facilitate their progress towards their recovery.
Early Phase of Admission:
In the initial stages of admission, it may be necessary to limit physical activity. Close and vigilant monitoring of a young person's physical health is a priority, and this may involve daily blood tests and electrocardiograms (ECGs) as prescribed by national guidelines. Our primary concern during this phase is to ensure the physical stability and well-being of the individual.
As a young person's physical condition stabilises, we gradually increase activity levels, and we set the expectation that they actively work towards achieving a healthier weight. This transition marks a significant step towards their journey to recovery and an improved quality of life.
Our healthcare professionals aim to support your child in their recovery, and to help do so we understand and respect the importance of a confidential, non-judgemental and safe environment.
We take appointments by concerned parents without GP referrals. If you are worried about your child’s eating habits or weight, simply book an appointment today. Choose from a time slot that suits you and your child best and our specialist will see you for a consultation.
Eating disorders have the potential to evolve into severe health concerns. Therefore, it is vital to get your child the guidance and proficiency of a seasoned team as soon as possible. We can arrange specialised appointments with eating disorder experts at your convenience. Instead of enduring lengthy waiting periods to see a specialist, you can secure an appointment within a few days.
We excel in delivering comprehensive treatments promptly to our patients. This is why our Birmingham clinic offers:
