An inquest heard that Kate Chilver, 31, developed symptoms when she was twelve and spent the rest of her life in specialist medical units until eventually dying from anorexia nervosa. She weighed just 4.7 stone.
Dr Frances Connan, a consultant psychologist who treated her at Vincent Square Clinic in south west London, said:
'I’d known Kate since her referral to our service in 2004.
