Referral Guidelines & Resources for GPs

Clients can contact us directly to book an appointment. However, if you would like to refer a client to Oxford Mind & Body please write a brief referral letter including the client’s diagnosis (if known) and the reason for referral.

.

If they struggle with an Eating Disorder (Anorexia, Bulimia, Binge Eating Disorder, or other Non-Specified Eating Disorder) please include current BMI (weight and height), recent eating and weight history. Referrals can be sent to us via post (Oxford Mind & Body, 130 High Street, Oxford, OX1 4DH) or scanned via email to expedite the process at contact@oxfordmindandbody.co.uk

.

Alternatively, should you wish to discuss a case prior to referring to us please call 07487 510 009 during working hours.

Additionally, the prescription of the following standard supplements is recommended to all underweight patients, until their weight is at BMI 18 or higher:

.

  • Thiamine 100mg, 3 times daily for the first 10 days, reduced to 25mg daily thereafter
  • Forceval  (or other extra strong multivitamin), 1 capsule daily
  • Vitamin B Compound Strong, 2 tablets, 3 times daily
  • Folic acid 5 mg
  • Adcal D3 ii (or equivalent calcium/Vitamin D3 preparation)

.

PS. Thiamine and Forceval are the most important. Most of these supplements can be prescribed via the NHS, or bought over the counter.
