ReMEmber Annual Conference with Dr Charles Shepherd and Dr Amolak Bansal is open to the general public | 27 April 2018

 


ReMEmber Press Release.

reMEmber will once again hold its Annual ME/CFS Awareness Week Conference in Burgess Hill this year. We are very grateful to Burgess Hill Town Council who are sponsoring this event with a grant of £1300.

We are calling on doctors, rehabilitation teams, healthcare professionals and, of course, patients and carers to come along and tell us what they want from a good service

The Conference will take place in the Sheldrake Suite at Martlets Hall, Burgess Hill RH15 9NN on Saturday 12th May starting at 2.00pm.

There will be two key speakers; Dr Amolak Bansal, consultant immunologist and Medical Adviser to reMEmber, and Dr Charles Shepherd, Medical Adviser to the National ME Association.

Dr Bansal (pictured) will be talking about some of the recent ground-breaking research into ME/CFS.

Dr Shepherd, who has ME himself, has spoken at several of our previous conferences. He will talk on several subjects including welfare benefits, the review of the NICE guidance, dealing with your doctor, and the need for more research.

Both doctors will take questions from the audience, and we want professionals, patients and carers to bring your ideas for a better deal for ME/CFS patients which we can pass on to NICE when we meet them on 25th May.

Because the event will be so popular reMEmber advises people to get tickets early. Tickets are £5 each including light refreshments.

You can buy them online through Eventbrite by going to our website www.remembercfs.org.uk or send a cheque and a stamped addressed envelope to reMEmber, PO Box 1647, Hassocks, West Sussex, BN6 9GQ.
