Eating disorder charity: Get help as early as possible

4 October 2013 Last updated at 14:05 BST

The eating disorder charity Beat says people with illnesses are waiting too long for treatment.

Susan Ringwood is Beat's Chief Executive. She says it's important to get help as early as possible.

People with physical health problems have a legal right to start treatment within 18 weeks. There's no such guarantee for mental health.

The charity says this needs to change urgently.
