Our History

 

In 1990 a College Eating Disorders Working Group was set up to produce the College Council Report CR 14, on eating disorders services in the UK. This group led to the development of the Eating Disorders Special Interest Group (EDSIG). The Special Interest Group was inaugurated by the college in 1995, with Professor Gerald Russell as its first Chair. In 2006, the Council agreed that a new College Section in Eating Disorders should be established in place of the EDSIG. Hence the Eating Disorders Section came into being in June 2007. In 2014, all College Sections became Faculties. Hence we are now the Faculty of Eating Disorders.
