Fight for M.E sufferers

8:40am Thursday 16th February 2012 in


Britain’s M.E. patients are simply too ill to fight the ignorance, injustice and neglect they face from Government, parts of the NHS, the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP), employers, teachers and sometimes even family members.

Action for M.E., the UK’s charity for people with Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (M.E.) and their carers, has launched a Time for Action campaign calling on people, especially the family, friends and relatives of Britain’s 250,000 M.E. patients, to sign up online at or via the phone number below and together build the momentum needed to force change.

No other illness with such a devastating impact on so many people has so little money spent on scientific research or the provision of specialist healthcare. Too many of those most affected by M.E. are simply left at home; lonely, isolated and abandoned by the medical profession and social services alike.
