Earlier this week I was pleased to attend a meeting with Beat, The UK’s eating disorder charity, to look at the latest research on eating disorders throughout the UK. It showed that many people take a shocking length of time to discover they have an eating disorder. On average, there’s a 3-and-a-half year gap between symptoms developing and treatment starting. I know many of my constituents are touched by this and I am happy to work with Beat in the future to help those affected by this awful disorder.
