A teenager suffering from anorexia has told how she had to sleep on the hospital floor while trying to get treatment.
New figures released to Today FM show funding was put in place for 20 new eating disorder treatment staff last year.
This was less than half the 47 promised by the government.
The lack of public services means many of those suffering have to try to seek help in emergency departments.
Sarah, whose name has been changed to protect her identity described her experience.
"We had to go to A&E because the doctor in CAMHS (Child and Adolescent Mental Health Service) sent me.
"I was hooked onto a drip because I was so weak and I passed out and threw up.
"When I came to they said they were going to find a bed for me, but there was no bed available so I had to sleep on the floor.
"Literally had a jacket over me as a blanket. I was still hooked to a drip and sleeping on the floor just waiting for a bed.
"They didn't give me a bed until midday the next day."
