Farewell talk by Professor Tony Pinching in Cornwall today (Monday, 4 July 2011)

July 3, 2011


Professor Tony Pinching, NHS clinical lead for ME/CFS in Cornwall, is to give a talk in Liskeard tomorrow (4 July) – on the eve of his retirement.

He has been invited by the Cornwall ME Self-Help Group to talk to members, friends and carers at The Public Hall, Liskeard, PL14 6BW, at 6.30pm.

All are welcome.

Admission will be £1 (free to accompanying carers). There is wheelchair access and free parking in the Westbourne Car Park, opposite the hall, after 4pm. For more information, please phone 01736 756775 or email: MESHcornwall@live.co.uk

Professor Pinching, previously at St Bartholomew's Hospital in London, has had a long and distinguished career as an immunologist – the latter part of which has been devoted to serving people with ME/CFS. He was deputy chairman of the expert working group which produced the Chief Medical Officer's Report on ME/CFS in January 2002 which acknowledged the depth and severity of the illness and called for urgent attention to be paid to it.

  1. I think I have said before – maybe not – this chap has done me more good than any other consultant I have seen in connection with this illness.

    It is a great shame to see him leave our service here in Cornwall, but I do (and have) wished him well. 🙂

  2. Hear, hear Firestorm. Prof Pinching was the first medical professional I saw that took my symptoms seriously, after several years of being dismissed out of hand, gave me a clear diagnosis and has been a great support over the last five years. I will miss him very much.

  3. Prof Pinching has been my consultant for a few years now and he has been brilliant. Very understanding that you have a life to lead and does his best to help you live it as much as possible. The thing that Prof Pinching was amazing at, was never talking down to you as some doctors do – you always felt at ease. A massive loss to Cornwall and indeed all ME sufferers everywhere! Happy retirement! 8)
