I am looking for information about waiting times for adult eating disorders treatment.

3. How many adults were urgently referred to the Trust’s eating disorder services in 2018/19?

4. How many adults were routinely (i.e. non-urgently) referred to the Trust’s eating disorder services in 2018/19?

5. What was the average waiting time to start treatment for adults urgently referred to the Trust's eating disorder services in 2018/19?

6. What was the average waiting time to start treatment for adults routinely (i.e. non-urgently) referred to the Trust's eating disorder services in 2018/19?

7. How many adults urgently referred to the Trust’s eating disorder services are currently waiting to start treatment?

8. How many adults routinely (i.e. non-urgently) referred to the Trust’s eating disorder services are currently waiting to start treatment?
