Welsh Government have announced a service review into eating disorders in Wales.

The Royal College of Psychiatrists in Wales is a stakeholder in the National Assembly for Wales cross party group into eating disorders and have long supported its aims, namely:

  • To review the eating disorder framework for Wales,
  • To raise the profile of eating disorders in general medical policy, and
  • To improve attitudes and reduce stigma of eating disorder.

Dr Jacinta Tan, Chair of the Faculty of Eating Disorders for the College has been asked to lead on this review on behalf of Welsh Government.

Chair of the Royal College of Psychiatrists in Wales, Professor Keith Lloyd said:

"The Royal College of Psychiatrists in Wales welcomes this vital service review from Welsh Government and acknowledges the good work of the Assembly cross party group into eating disorders.

We are encouraged by the appointment of Dr Jacinta Tan to lead on this work on behalf of Welsh Government and are looking forward to contributing to this review and helping to shape the picture for services in Wales."
