BBC Radio 4 and The Lightning Process



BBC Radio 4 is planning an item on the treatment of ME/CFS using the controversial Lightning Process.  This is for inclusion in an edition of ‘You and Yours’ – possibly on Monday next week (ie 30 July). 

The programme goes out at 12.04pm/ It will be linked in some way to the child’s audio diary which wil be broadcast on Radio 4 tomorrow (July 27) at 11am.


The MEA has been assisting with background information and comment but we are not sure who will be contributing on the day.
