dc.description.abstractIn 2010, the authors identified in a separate publication, Mind the evidence gap, the sparse evidence-base for the treatment of adult anorexia nervosa and barriers to accessing care. We report on the ensuing development, implementation and first 18-month results of a novel eating disorder service bridging the primary and specialist continuum of care in Victoria, Australia.Using literature review, stakeholder, and consumer and carer consultation, a model for a community eating disorder service was developed and then implemented. All patients entering the service were then assessed at intake and, if they gave consent, at 12 month follow-up.From December 2010 to July 2012, 208 patients accessed The Body Image Eating Disorders Treatment and Recovery Service (BETRS). Fifty-three per cent had a diagnosis of anorexia nervosa and the mean number of co-morbid psychiatric diagnoses was two. Twenty-three per cent attended a day patient programme and showed a significant improvement in their body mass index. Measures of depression, anxiety and eating disorder symptomatology showed a concomitant, significant decrease.The development of BETRS has led to markedly improved access and effectiveness of specialist services in the region.en
