The STEPs Eating Disorders service provides inpatient care to adults with a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa and an eating disorder not otherwise specified (EDNOS). The service is part of the South West Provider Collaborative, delivering specialist services across the South West region.

Our 10-bed inpatient Acer Unit is available to: 

  • male and female adults from the age of 18 years and over. We are also able to support younger adults aged 17 and a half years.  

  • adults who are admitted on a voluntary basis or under the Mental Health Act (1983).  

  • If you, or the person you care for, are on the waiting list or scheduled to be admitted to the ward, a visit will be arranged for you by your care coordinator.

Referrals to our inpatient Acer Unit are made via the STEPs Eating Disorders community team.
