Referrals for the Feeding Disorders Team should be sent in writing to Dr Elaine Chung, Locum Consultant Psychiatrist. We are unable to accept GP referrals. Referrals are accepted from CAMHS clinicians or consultant paediatricians. We always aim to work with local professionals for your child’s care. If the child is over the age of five and not known to local CAMHS, we will liaise with local CAMHS colleagues where it is indicated.
- infants with faltering growth requiring medical management
- children and young people with a current medical condition (to include oral motor functioning) that directly accounts for their feeding or eating difficulties
- children and young people with unmanaged oro-pharyngeal dysphagia (swallowing difficulties). If you wish to consider referring a child with known managed dysphagia please contact the Service Co-ordinator
- children and young people with anorexia nervosa and related presentations are seen by the Eating Disorders Team as part of our Feeding and Eating Disorders Service
