MPs call on Government to Act on Eating Disorders and #DumpTheScales
Jun 4, 2019 —
Today 54 MPs got together and sent Jackie Doyle Price, Minister for Mental Health and Suicide, a letter picking her up on her "stock response" to us taking the petition to Number 10.
What MPs are urging her to do is to revisit the issue, and are requesting her to:
1. Make a statement regarding the government’s approach to the management and treatment of eating disorders
2. Work with Parliamentarians, and with Hope, to come up with a timeframe in which these changes can be brought about
3. Work with Parliamentarians, and with Hope, to address the issues around communications and training.
It is amazing to see MPs coming together to tackle this and we need to make sure that action is taken now.
Thank you for all your continued support! Please do head over to my twitter (@HopeVirgo) or my Instagram (@HopeVirgo1) and share the joint letter using the hashtag #DumpTheScales.
Let's keep shouting about this so we can end the injustices of people with eating disorders.
Keep fighting for people power!
