ME Association advise on powerful ME/CFS storyline on BBC1 drama today | 4 December 2015

There was a powerful ME/CFS storyline today on the BBC1 lunchtime soap, Doctors.

MEA Publicity Manager Tony Britton was asked to advise on the technical aspects of the script. He briefed members of the ME Association about the upcoming episode in our ME Essential magazine a couple of issues ago.

Tony writes:

“I exchanged notes with the scriptwriters over the space of two or three weeks earlier this year.

“Although they didn’t use my every suggestion, they used some and I’m very pleased indeed with the result.”
