The ME Association has been offered the top slot on the BBC Radio 4 Today programme tomorrow morning (Friday) to discuss the present state of ME research in the UK.
MEA medical adviser Dr Charles Shepherd (pictured) is expected to be interviewed at 8.10am – with an earlier recorded package presented by BBC science correspondent Tom Fielden, which is expected to feature interviews with Professor Simon Wessely and Dr Esther Crawley.
If you're near a radio, start listening at about 7.45am to catch Fielden's report.
Of course, this announcement comes with the usual warning. The item may be squeezed out if a major news event breaks. We were trumped by the Public Sector Pensions story this morning.
