Exciting development of the LSCB website
The LSCB Business Unit have been working closely with a website designer to develop a stand alone Hillingdon LSCB website. The website will inform professionals, parents, carers and most importantly, children and young people, about the work of the Board. It will contain a wide range of information; from the help that is available for parents and carers, to training programmes, guidance and advice.
Launch is set for 3rd October 2016.
New Services for young people with Eating Disorders in West London
For residents of Hillingdon, Ealing, Hounslow, Hammersmith and Fulham, Brent, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster there is now a new service for those with suspected or confirmed eating disorders. This service will offer assessment, diagnosis and intervention on a range of suspected and confirmed eating disorders for young people up to their 18th birthday and unlike many other services people can self-refer.
It is often difficult for young people to talk to their parents or doctors and so it is hoped that by giving them the choice to get in touch and discuss their problems that it will speed up the process of them getting the help and support they need.
For people living in Hillingdon, Harrow, Brent, Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster people should call 020 3315 2711, For Hammersmith and Fulham, Ealing and Hounslow please call 020 8354 8160
