In 2017/18, NHS England commissioned NHS Benchmarking to collect data on current levels of provision for adults with an eating disorder across community and inpatient services for adults with an eating disorder including levels of investment, mapping of services, quantifying the workforce, understanding waiting times and distances travelled for inpatient care. The outputs were reported to NHS England in 2018, and are being used by NHS England to assess levels of geographical variation, and to model the cost and workforce implications of any future commitments to service improvements.
