Charity concern about anorexia care
An eating disorders charity hopes lessons will be learned following an inquest into the death of a Bristol teenager.
Laura Willmott, of Redland, was just 18 when she lost her battle with anorexia in December 2011. An inquest into her death heard that she died as a result of a brain injury caused by a cardiac arrest while being treated for the physical symptoms of her anorexia.
The inquest heard she was able to be discharged once she turned 18 and her mother Vickie Townsend has concerns about the transition from child to adult care for patients with anorexia.
Anorexia and Bulimia Care director Jane Smith said: "Sadly we hear from families every week who are unhappy with treatment, the wait for treatment and with the transition arrangements between care for children and adults in our health service."
