Model agencies have been standing outside one of Swedens largest anorexia clinics and have been trying to recruit new model amongst the patients.

– They have been courting 14-15 years old severely ill girls, says Christina Lillman-Ringbor, care coordinator.

The center, specialized in eating disorder, in Stockholm is not only Stockholms largest but the largest in the whole Nordic region.

Here people are being treated for eating disorders such as anorexia and bulimia.

Metro can now reveal that model agencies have been trying to find new models amongst the severely ill patients.

– We find that absolutely reprehensible. They have been standing outside our clinic and trying to pick up our girls because they know that they are skinny. That sends absolutely the wrong signals when what the girls need is treatment, says Anna-Maria af Sandeberg, head of department and chef physician.

Among other things the agents have supposedly approached the girls when out walking together.

– They knew our schedule and could approach the girls outdoor. They are young girls with anorexia. Some of the girls BMI are as low as 14 and that most often requires around-the clock care, says Christina Lillman-Ringborg,

The last incident the clinic knows about happened about a year ago. After that the joint walks have stopped. But the clinic says the attempts to recruit patients may still continue.
