In 2017, the Eating Disorder Centre Cork (EDCC) approached the Community Work Department of the Health Service Executive (HSE) to commission a report that would assess the levels of satisfaction with the services provided by the EDCC. Serveral meetings took place to establish the scope of the research that would form the basis of this report.
In October 2017, questionnaires devised by the Principal Investigators – Dr Cormac Sheehan, Department of General Practice, UCC and HSE, and Grace Kelly, M.A., HSE – were posted to the active client base of the EDCC.
The findings presented in this report are based on analysis of the questionnaires returned by the active clients base, the staff and Board of Management of the EDCC.
The authors wish to express gratitude to those who completed the questionnaire, to the staff and Board of Management of the EDCC and to the Community Work Department.
