Eating disorders, hospital admissions rise

12th October 2012

New data from the Health and Social Care Information Centre has revealed that hospital admissions for eating disorders rose by 16% in England over the last year.

In the 12 months to June, there were 2,290 admissions with some 75% of them related to anorexia nervosa and children and young people account for most of the admissions. With an estimated 1.6m people in the UK affected by an eating disorder, experts have suggested that the latest figures show only the "tip of the iceberg".
