Orri opens Wimpole Street site

Harley Street Medical Area-based eating disorder specialist Orri has opened a new treatment facility on Wimpole Street.

The six-storey clinic has been purpose-built to accommodate the clinic’s intensive day treatment programme, alongside individual and group therapy sessions, meals and dietetic support.

Orri’s original centre on Hallam Street has been converted to an outpatient space, providing one-to-one, in-person sessions with eating disorder specialists.

All programmes follow a ‘stepped approach’, blending evidence-based and innovative approaches, which draw on a number of therapeutic modalities to understand and overcome the underlying cause of the eating disorder while healing the day-to-day, behavioural symptoms.

UK hospital admissions for eating disorders have increased by 84% in the last five years, and there has been a sharp rise in admissions for boys and men. Since the pandemic alone, eating disorders have increased by 42% in teenage girls specifically (30% higher than expected).

The new clinic offers intensive day treatment both online and in person for people aged 16 and above.

Orri founder and CEO Kerrie Jones said: ‘Orri was founded to offer a new choice of outstanding and innovative treatment for eating disorder recovery. It is for this reason that we were drawn to the Harley Street Medical Area and Howard de Walden for their long-standing community of pioneering healthcare professionals who hold one another accountable to providing expert care.’
