Almost 300 people have received specialist eating disorders treatment from Highland and Moray's NHS services in just one year. The problem's being described by a top psychiatrist in the MFR area as "the tip of the iceberg." MFR News has had exclusive access to North Scotland's eating disorder clinic. Becky Rutkin, a patient at the Eden Unit at The Royal Cornhill Hospital in Aberdeen, has spoken exclusively to MFR. The 26 year old, who's from Inverness, sought help 11 months ago. She tells MFR Reporter Bryan Rutherford how she's battled the life-threatening condition.
