Better Together


This Eating Disorder Awareness Week; Schoen Clinic UK has announced it has partnered with Beat, the UK’s Eating Disorder Charity, to help raise awareness of eating disorders and address the challenges patients face on the road to recovery.

Schoen Clinic UK - the LaingBuisson Private Hospital Group of the Year 2020 - creates peer-reviewed clinical research on eating disorders and is a leading contributor at the International Eating Disorder Conference 2022 having had 10 pieces of research or practice leadership accepted. It’s 3 dedicated facilities use multi-disciplinary teams offering a holistic service for patients with eating disorders in London, York and Birmingham.

Founded in 1989, Beat exists to end suffering and loss of life among people affected by eating disorders. Working both nationally and locally, they help people to understand their illness and move towards recovery. Beat helps families know how to support loved ones into, through and out of treatment. They train professionals to support early treatment seeking and they campaign for better government policy and health services, always guided by their beneficiaries’ experience and clinicians’ expertise.

With a shared vision of focussing on the road to recovery, the Schoen Clinic / Beat partnership will help drive necessary education, guidance and fundraising initiatives and make sure everyone has access to the right treatments.

This Eating Disorders Awareness Week, Beat is calling for all UK medical schools and foundation year programmes to include proper training on eating disorders.

Philip Roethenbaugh, Beat’s Director of Marketing says, “We are delighted to be working with Schoen Clinic. Hospitals such as theirs can play an integral role in helping those affected by eating disorders on the road to recovery, especially in what we know has been an incredibly challenging time for those we support.”

Rachel Matthews, Schoen Clinic’s Director of Mental Health Services says, “As an independent provider, we work closely with mental health specialists and researchers to ensure our methods and care bring quality clinical outcomes to sufferers.  Education is intrinsic to this aim and an imperative part of the change we envision through our work.  Our partnership with Beat will help to showcase the fundamental support and resources available not just to those admitted into hospital but also for the wider community such as teachers, carers, parents and GPs.”

Key Facts - Eating Disorders Awareness Week (EDAW) 2022.

  • Eating disorders are devastating mental illnesses that affect 1 in 50 people in the UK.
  • Recovery is possible. But we rely on our GPs to spot early warning signs (which may have nothing to do with weight or appearance).
  • The average GP gets less than two hours training on eating disorders, in their entire medical degree —and 1 in 5 UK medical schools don’t provide any training on eating disorders at all.
  • This delays access to treatment and leads to misdiagnosis of eating disorders — the consequences of which can be devastating.

The good news is that this training exists. Beat has developed comprehensive courses for medical students, which some UK medical schools have started to teach. But ‘some’ is not enough.

Join the campaign calling for all UK medical schools to offer proper training on eating disorders.
