Yorkshire Centre for Eating Disorders

The YCED began treating individuals with eating disorders in 1978; it was originally known as the Leeds Eating Disorders Team. It was modernised in 2005 in line with the NICE guidelines. The service has rapidly developed into the largest northern 'eating disorder service', and is at the forefront of innovative research. We work in partnership with St George’s Eating Disorders Unit.

The YCED is part of the Specialist Services Directorate of Leeds and York Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.


Our vision

Our vision is wedded to recovery from eating disorders. We aim to assist those who use our services to return to a state of wellness and to achieve an acceptable quality of life. We recognise that this will be achieved through offering choice, working in a partnership of mutual respect and providing person-centred treatments.


Our values

Our priority is the people who use our services. We aim to provide a comprehensive and flexible clinical service that will meet and treat the needs of individuals with eating disorders.

We believe that quality of care is dependent on collective commitment and expertise of the Team, including service users and carers.

We have a commitment to develop new treatment techniques and actively pursue research interests
