As part of our ongoing work with ME, yesterday was a significant day with Carol Monaghan MP securing a Westminster Hall debate on ‘PACE trial: People with ME’.
It's been almost a decade since Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) has been debated in the Commons. Yesterday gave renewed hope to the 250,000 people in the UK estimated to suffer from the illness.
Sarah Reed said:
The debate was well attended by MP’s and support is growing for people who have been “easy for society to ignore”
The half hour debate has been an important foot in the door for change and Sarah is already working to make sure that a larger debate will follow. She is also representing #MEAction on the Forward ME group, an umbrella group of ME charities, led by the Countess of Mar.
