The ME Association (MEA). This is the official report from the All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on ME that contains key recommendations aimed at increasing research investment and discovery, improving health and social care, and enhancing the lives of people with ME/CFS. It was launched at an official reception with the Rt. Hon. Sajid Javid in May 2022.
Last year, the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) launched an important report - Rethinking ME- and this highlighted vital recommendations to help people with ME receive good quality health and social care. These included the implementation of the 2021 NICE Clinical Guideline on ME/CFS and creating strategies to transform the approach towards ME in health, welfare, social care, research, and education.
Members of the APPG on ME, the former Health Secretary Sajid Javid, and Nicki Strong (Trustee) of the ME Association attended the report’s launch at the Houses of Parliament in May. The ME Association understands the importance of this report and we believe it will help to shape the future for people with ME and their families.
The Rethinking ME 37 page report is available to download from the MEA’s website. Plus also available is a template letter to help you write to your local MP .
