Lynne Featherstone MP recently met with patients and staff at the Eating Disorders Unit at St Ann’s Hospital.
The eating disorder service is a highly specialised branch of mental health which is focused on treating patients suffering severe weight loss through conditions such as anorexia and bulimia. It provides services to patients from across north London and Essex and also provides specialist in-patient services from across the country.
St Ann’s is located in Lynne Featherstone’s Hornsey and Wood Green constituency.
The Liberal Democrat MP discussed the service with Maria Kane, Chief Executive of Barnet, Enfield and Haringey Mental Health NHS Trust, and with Dr Eric Johnson-Sabine who is one of the UK’s leading experts on eating disorders. She also met with other staff from the service and with some of the patients.
Lynne Featherstone MP comments:
“I was truly inspired by the visit. It was fascinating to hear of the excellent and pioneering work that the team are doing at the service. I was also glad to hear directly from some of the patients about their experiences with the service.”
