The Somerset NHS Foundation Trust Eating Disorders Service for Adults (EDSA) went live with their FREED pathway on 1st July 2020. With the launch taking place during lockdown, some of the team got together via video, from their homes or socially distanced office environments, to celebrate the launch of FREED for adults across Somerset.
The team wore shades of blue or white in line with the FREED logo, donned smiles, and had the FREED letters and logos dotted around, all ready for a screenshot to mark the launch. The team also took the time to talk together about the processes they have been through in the lead-up to FREED, and how they were feeling about going live with the pathway. There was a strong sense of passion and excitement about getting people onto the pathway, and in being able to offer early support and intervention.
