Cotswold Spa Hospital
About Cotswold Spa
Cotswold Spa Hospital is a specialist eating disorder service for young people aged from 13 up to 17 years and a young adult ward aged 18 up to 24 years. The service offers both inpatient and day patient treatment programmes.
The hospital is situated in the picturesque village of Broadway, Worcestershire, close to the Cotswold Way, The area boasts natural beauty with Cheltenham to the South and Warwick to the North.
The service is for young people of all genders with an eating disorder, predominantly:
- Bulimia Nervosa
- Anorexia Nervosa
The hospital has been specifically designed with the young person and young adult in mind. The interior design of the hospital is both contemporary and comfortable incorporating young people’s art.
There is an on-site Ofsted registered school so that education is not interrupted during treatment. We also provide education to local GPs and schools.
Patients, on average, stay for a period of three to four months. The aim is to restore a healthy weight, modify the problem behaviours linked to the eating disorder and help parents and carers work with the young person to sustain their achievements post discharge.
The team are committed to providing comprehensive treatment which supports the young person and their family who are experiencing the impact of an eating disorder. We provide help with weight restoration combined with an intensive therapeutic package working with the young person and their family or carers.
We offer a range of therapeutic groups and workshops to enable people to think about what is happening to them, to feel comfortable expressing their feelings and to make behavioural changes.
Our Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) consists of medical, nursing, education and therapeutic professionals, including family therapy and dietetic input.
