Parliamentary Question: ME diagnosis in Brighton and Hove

Mike Weatherley, Conservative MP for Hove, tabled a question which asked the Secretary of State for Health how many people in the City of Brighton and Hove were diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis in each year since 2007.

The question was answered on 20 January 2011 by Paul Burstow, the Minister for Care Services, who in a written answer replied:

This information is not collected centrally. However, the hon. Member may wish to contact Brighton and Hove Primary Care Trust directly for local information on the number of people diagnosed with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis.
