Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Waiting Times (CYP ED)

Background to the collection

In England, under the NHS Constitution, patients 'have the right to access certain services commissioned by NHS bodies within maximum waiting times, or for the NHS to take all reasonable steps to offer a range of suitable alternative providers if this is not possible'. NHS England collects and publishes monthly information on the number of children and young people with an eating disorder who have access or are waiting for treatment. This information is used to monitor the referral to treatment (RTT) element of the CYP ED standard as introduced in Mental health services: achieving better access by 2020 and described in the Access and Waiting Time Standard for Children and Young People with an Eating Disorder Commissioning Guide

Monthly CYP ED waiting times data has been published since quarter 1 2016/17.

NHS England publishes these data each month. For further information please visit the NHS England website.
