The chair of the Assembly group on eating disorders is calling on the Welsh Government to provide more support for sufferers. Bethan Jenkins AM says Wales needs a specially-dedicated unit.
The Welsh Government gave £1m over three years for the Eating Disorders Framework, but now its time for a new commitment. People will ask - how can we afford this in an age of cuts? But I am arguing that, first of all, we need an improved service for sufferers. And, secondly, a unit here may well turn out to provide better value for money in the longer term.
