NSW Service Plan: Developing Services

Quick Links – Service Support

Below you will find contact details for your Local Eating Disorder Coordinator, and links to request service support. The NSW Clinical Management Support Service has been developed as a place where clinicians can request case consultation, which will be forwarded to your local coordinator for follow up and action. The Service Development Support Form is a form for LHD staff members to request support for implementing the NSW Service Plan for Eating Disorders. This request will also be forwarded to your local coordinator for action, and you will hear back from a CEDD staff member the next two weeks. You can also email us anytime to request support.
