A long-established private clinic for people with eating disorders has just opened in a new home in Brookmans Park.

The Rhodes Farm Clinic, which has been treating patients in north London for nearly 25 years, relocated staff and residents to Sheperds Way on Tuesday.

A former care home, once part of Queenswood School, has been expanded for the clinic, which will be renamed Rhodes Wood Hospital.

It will include a purpose-built high dependency service for young people who need intensive levels of care.

Joy Chamberlain, group chief executive of Partnerships in Care, which runs the clinic, said: ”This exciting development will lead to Rhodes Wood Hospital offering one of the widest and most comprehensive specialist Eating Disorder Services in the UK.”
