The Eating Disorder Coordinator in your local health district provides clinical consultation and support to health professionals and teams treating people with eating disorders. This service is only available for health professionals.
Meg Vickery is the local eating disorder coordinator for the Western NSW Local Health District (WNSWLHD), along with Belinda Green.
Navigating access to assessment and evidence based treatment can be difficult, especially in rural areas without specialist eating disorder services. Belinda and Meg work to assist consumers and their families to access eating disorder assessment and treatment in a variety of ways including development of pathways and models of care for rural clients to access care locally and in the least restrictive environment. They also provide clinical consultation to local clinicians, workforce training, contribution to rural research projects and more.
Belinda has been working as a Clinical Psychologist and Meg as a Dietitian since 1996.
