Eating Disorders Service

The Eating Disorders Service is a well-established secondary service with an excellent international reputation. There is a large outpatient service and an inpatient unit which offers an intensive care programme for weight restoration, including a Day Programme, for patients across the East Midlands region with low weight Anorexia Nervosa.

The Service is currently recruiting for Band 5 nurses, qualified as either an RMN or RN for our inpatient unit at the Glenfield General Hospital Site in north Leicester. Patients referred for inpatient treatment are at a very low weight and have a high degree of physical and psychiatric co-morbidity. Experience of working with patients with eating disorders is desirable but not essential, as full training will be provided.

The successful applicant will be expected to undertake (but not be limited to):

  • Contribute to the smooth operational running of the ward and to deliver all aspects of the intensive care programme for patients with anorexia nervosa, at various stages of their recovery.
  • Supervise meals, assist patients with meal planning, and providing emotional support with management of weight and eating difficulties.
  • Effectively manage physical and psychiatric risk associated with this patient group.
  • Participate in the provision of group activities in the Day Programme, alongside our Occupational Therapy team that is based in the unit. We facilitate a number of psychological groups such as CBT, Interpersonal effectiveness training, Motivational Enhancement Therapy, Body wise to name but a few. We also offer practical interventions such as meal cookery, breakfast group, sandwich making and baking group.


This is an exciting opportunity for an enthusiastic, motivated, and reliable person, with good interpersonal and team working skills. We are looking to appoint individuals who are willing to develop a range of skills in a challenging yet rewarding role. This includes an ability to hold a boundary; enable patients to resist their eating disorder behaviours and work towards recovery.

We always strive to provide exceptional care to our patients, so are looking for staff who work towards high professional standards and who always act in line with our Trust values of care, compassion, integrity and trust. Successful candidates would be required to work within our multi-disciplinary team, including consultant psychiatrists and therapists.


You will receive exceptional in-service training and supervision.

We operate a 3-shift system covering a 24/7 operation. Successful applicants should be able to work on the rotating pattern, but we may be able to be flexible with the shift pattern on request.

Maureen Williams, Ward Manager on 0116 2951474.
