The All Party Parliamentary Group on ME will hold the first of its evidence sessions in its Inquiry into NHS services for people with ME/CFS this Thursday (July 9). A second session has been arranged for the afternoon of Thursday, July 16.
Both sessions will be open the public.
The first session this Thursday afternoon will be held in Committee Room 8, House of Commons, between 2 and 4pm. This is at variance with the room number contained in the official invitation which says the session will be held in Committee Room 18 – but the room number has been checked by a reliable contact and confirmed as Committee Room 8.
The session will be devoted to taking oral evidence from people with ME in the first hour and patient groups – including the ME Association and Action for ME – in the second hour.
The session on July 16 will be held in Committee Room 18, House of Commons, also between 2 and 4pm.
This session will take evidence from health professionals and other experts.
It is estimated that there is public seating for between 40 and 50 people in each room.
The Inquiry will only be looking at NHS services for people with ME/CFS in England. Health services in other parts of the UK are outside the remit of the Wewstminster Parliament.
REMINDER: The Annual General Meeting of the APPG on ME will be held this Wednesday (July 8) in Committee Room 20, House of Commons, between 1.30pm and 3pm. Other business will also be discussed.
