The NSW Service Plan for People with Eating Disorders 2021-2025 (Service Plan 2021-25) aims to improve the health and wellbeing of people with or at risk of developing an eating disorder and the lives of their families, carers and communities. The Service Plan 2021-25 aims to embed eating disorders service provision as core business for Local Health Districts and Speciality Health Networks.
The treatment of eating disorders is a key priority for the NSW Government. Increased investment in eating disorders treatment has strengthened frontline eating disorders services to deliver person-centred mental health and medical care for people with eating disorders, their families and carers
The Service Plan 2021-25 provides a framework that identifies NSW priorities to build and strengthen pathways to care; drive evidence-based practice in promotion, prevention, early intervention and treatment; and drive service improvement and innovation through the Service Plans vision of inclusion, excellence and collaboration.
The Service Plan 2021-25 identifies six key strategic priority areas that are essential to improve health outcomes for people with or at risk of developing an eating disorder and their families and carers across NSW. The Service Plan 2021-25 and associated Blueprint for Action will facilitate improved health outcomes as well as economic benefits for NSW by identifying areas of excellence and addressing areas in need of further development.
