Professor Stephen Holgate at next meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on ME

The next meeting of the All Party Group on M.E. will be held at 1.30pm on 16th February –  in room W1, Westminster Hall.

The Group will be addressed by Professor Stephen Holgate, Chair of the Medical Research Council (MRC) Expert group on M.E. This reflects the emphasis on biomedical research which was identified as a high priority by people with M.E. via the Manifesto for M.E. prior to the election and from feedback to Action for M.E. and the ME Association since then.

Full details of the agenda can be found HERE

Ms Annette Brooke MP, Vice-Chair of the Group, will chair this meeting pending the election of a replacement for David Amess MP. The Group decided at its last meeting that its meeting in February will not be open to the public.

We would also urge you to continue to encourage your local MP to go along. You can find a a draft message to MPs here, which you may wish to use or adapt to suit local constituency circumstances.

If you would like to comment on the work of the APPG for M.E. please contact the secretariat with your views, questions and suggestions.
