Results NHS Sheffield then held discussions with providers and the strategy was agreed. Implementation began in September 2011. ‘It’s shown you can change the way services are provided,’ says Dr Wight. ‘It’s reassuring to be able to say we did make a difference there and have changed the way things are happening.’ By early 2012, indications suggested the new strategy would achieve savings of £220,000 from the £400,000 previously spent on inpatient services for eating disorders. Further testing will be needed to prove whether the savings have been made through the introduction of the day service or just from there being less demand.
