Information for Professionals
GP’s are often the first point of contact when seeking information and support on eating disorders.
As a GP, you are likely to be the first health professional a person with an eating disorder or carer will come in contact with. A GP’s role in the treatment of eating disorders can include prevention, identification, medical management in a primary care setting and referral (NEDC, 2015).
The following are a collection of articles, guidelines, diagrams and other resources that GP’s and other health professionals may find helpful and insightful. As an individual or carer, you may also find the following helpful, however, we encourage you to check out What is an Eating Disorder? or Your Role as Carer first. As this section is compiled for GP’s and health professionals, you may find the content contains medical terminology, if you are unsure of the meanings please consult with your current treatment team.
