EATING DISORDER DIAGNOSIS
EDM #1765
Tabled 29 October 2018
2017-19 Session
That this House believes that access to a diagnosis and treatment for eating disorders should not just depend on an individual's weight and fully supports the Dump the Scales campaign for earlier intervention and support before people hit crisis point; recognises the need for a focus by General Practitioners on mental health when treating those suffering with an eating disorder; notes that the NHS England guidelines on eating disorders are not being implemented fully; further believes that there should be improved training for junior doctors on eating disorders; believes that a standard or reporting mechanism needs to be introduced around eating disorder diagnosis; and calls on the Government to introduce waiting time standards for adults as well as children with eating disorders.
