Joint Committee On Health

Eating Disorders: Bodywhys

Ms Jacinta Hastings:

For somebody to be an involuntary patient, it is often a decision which is taken by a consultant. From a Bodywhys perspective, we would have no involvement in a medical decision. That is usually taken from a consultant's perspective, and it would be under the Mental Health Act.
