Help us boost eating disorder support in primary care

  24 April 2024  NWMPHN   

Right Care, Right Place is a project that aims to increase the availability and effectiveness of care for eating disorders in primary health settings.

It will build the capacity of existing systems by addressing barriers to good care, with a focus on supporting more health professionals to become skilled in identifying and treating eating disorders.

Accessing the right type of treatment early in illness can reduce the burden on the individual, their family, community, and the health care system.

Right Care, Right Place is a collaboration between North Western Melbourne Primary Health Network (NWMPHN) and the National Eating Disorders Collaboration (NEDC).

One key element of the project is a survey for health professionals who provide screening, identification or treatment for eating disorders, or who are interested in training to be able to do so. Another is the formation of a sector advisory group to guide the development of the model.

The survey, which includes an invitation to join the new group, can be found here. It closes on Friday, May 17, 2024. We would love to hear of your experiences and thoughts!

If you have any questions about the project or wish to discuss further, please contact NWMPHN’s project lead, Cathy Wyett at
