Jersey eating disorder patients 'not getting care'
People with eating disorders are not getting the long term help and support they need from Jersey's health service, according to a support group.
BEAT Jersey helps eating disorder patients and their carers. They say psychiatric services are not able to cope with the number of people needing help.
Eating disorders range from anorexia and bulimia to binge eating but all relate to a psychological illness behind the food related symptoms.
Jersey's Health and Social Services Department said it was committed to offering psychological support to those with eating disorders and had three specialist nurses.
