It was a pleasure to meet with Tooting campaigner, Hope Virgo, today to support her Dump The Scales Campaign.
Following Hope's experience of being turned away from services for not being "thin" enough, the campaign was born. But this didn't happen to just Hope; it happens to hundreds of people weekly across the NHS.
Over a million people in the UK have suffered from an eating disorder at some point in their life, but many are not properly diagnosed because they are told by GPs they are not under or overweight enough.
Hope is calling on the Government to implement guidelines around eating disorder diagnosis - and Dump The Scales.
I am unbelievably proud to represent such a strong change-maker in Parliament.
