We’re calling on the Government to extend the waiting times targets that exist for children and young people with eating disorders in England, to ensure that people of all ages can access eating disorder treatment as soon as they need it. We know that people delay for years before seeking treatment. If their 19th birthday passes during that time, they miss the chance to be treated quickly. This is wrong.
Evidence shows that treating people with eating disorders quickly gives the best possible chance of recovery.
Will your MP support our campaign to introduce eating disorder waiting times for everyone in England?
