21-year-old Keira Marlow from Brecon suffered with anorexia for four years. She was treated by various different services, including a general psychiatric hospital in Wales. She was eventually sent to a specialist eating disorder hospital in Marlborough and then began to recover.
Not only did this hospital treat the physical damage of anorexia, through gaining weight and monitoring my medical needs, but it also helped me with the mental damage anorexia caused.
There is not a single eating disorder hospital in Wales. A Welsh hospital would mean that the Welsh government would no longer have to spend thousands of pounds every year on funding the inpatient stay of a Welsh sufferer in an English hospital.
A Welsh hospital would also help to reduce the stress of being so far away from home and would make it easier for family and friends to visit.
