The Council agreed in 2006 that a
new College Section in Eating Disorders should be established in
place of the Eating Disorders Special Interest Group (EDSIG). The
Eating Disorders Section was born in June 2007.
The EDSIG began life in 1990 as the College Eating Disorders
Working Group. This group produced College Council Report CR 14, on
eating disorders services in the UK. This survey has recently been
updated in collaboration with the Consumers Association and a
published in Health Which.
In the following years, the group collaborated with the Eating
Disorders Association in the preparation of their guides to
purchasing and providing services and in a large survey of EDA
members' views of their treatment. The Special Interest Group was
inaugurated at the Annual meeting of the College, in Torquay, 6
July 1995, with Professor Gerald Russell as its first Chair. It
brings together psychiatrists working in the field aiming to
exchange information and improve services for this often neglected
group of patients and their families.
