To ask the Scottish Government, further to the answer to question S5W-12688 by Maureen Watt on 22 November 2017, how many CAMHS patients with eating disorders have been referred to the independent sector in each year since 2007.
Answered by: Maureen Watt 6 December 2017
Data is not centrally available.
The data held in the ISD CAMHs database is aggregated data and is not split by type of diagnosis. It is therefore not possible to provide a specific response regarding waiting time for children and young people with an eating disorder. The ISD CAMHs database also does not hold information on patients referred to the independent sector.
