The latest edition of the ME Association's ‘Purple Booklet' has been flying off the shelf since it came out in the middle of 2013 – with over 7,000 copies being sent out. It's available, price £6, only from our office at Buckingham, tel: 01280 818 968.
Of the thousands of copies sent out so far, the vast majority have been posted free to GPs, consultants, other healthcare practitioners and medical libraries in all parts of the UK – thanks to two successful Christmas appeals that paid for the printing and postage. And we're delighted to be able to still offer this particular facility.
If you would like your healthcare professional to be sent a copy, please email their full names and addresses to firstname.lastname@example.org
The full title of the booklet is ‘ME/CFS/PVFS: An Exploration of the Key Clinical Issues'. It is written and regularly updated by Dr Charles Shepherd, medical adviser to the ME Association, and Dr Abhijit Chaudhuri, consultant neurologist at the Essex Neurosciences Centre, Queen's Hospital, Romford.
An edition, prepared only for circulation in New Zealand, is available from ANZMES, the Associated New Zealand ME Society.
