To ask the Secretary of State for Health, for what reason NHS England does not refer patients to Navigo's specialist eating disorder unit Rharian Fields in Great Grimsby.

We are informed by NHS England that its Specialised Commissioning North team “does refer patients to Rharian Fields. The choice of a unit is based on a number of criteria including patient choice, service capacity, patient mix and clinical need. Locally, when patients are referred to Rharian Fields, a clinical discussion takes place regarding whether this is the most appropriate pathway/placement for the patient. If not, they will then be referred to a different unit.”

Does this answer the above question?
