Dr Betty Dowsett in hospital

Just before the start of the ‘ME Question Time’ meeting in Colchester on Saturday we were given the news that Dr Betty Dowsett had been taken to hospital.

We understand from Jane Colby, who was in touch with the hospital yesterday (Sunday) that Betty is ‘OK in herself’ and is undergoing tests at the moment.

If anyone would like to send a card to Betty, the address is:
