The first dedicated residential care centre for the treatment of eating disorders is to open in Ireland at the end of September.

An estimated 200,000 people suffer from some form of eating disorder, but Ireland has no dedicated residential care facilities outside of a hospital setting.

Only three public beds at St Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin are designated for the treatment of eating disorders nationally.
