Welsh Government 'committed' to eating disorder help

The Welsh Government say they are committed to providing care and support to people in need of treatment and they are reviewing the current services.

The Welsh Government has invested an addtional £1million every year since 2010 to sustain and develop services. Two specialist eating disorder teams have been established - one for north Wales and one for south Wales - to improve diagnosis, care and support for people with eating disorders.

For those few people requiring highly specialised care due to the severity of their disorder, care is provided at one of a small number of specialist centres in the UK.
