Sajid Javid resigns

Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, resigns and is replaced by Stephen Barclay

The resignation of Sajid Javid, Secretary of State for Health and Social Security, is clearly bad news given his genuine concern and commitment to improve the care of people with ME/CFS and research into the cause and treatment of ME/CFS

Fortunately, the three ministeral groups covering patient experience, education and training, and research into cause and treatment of ME/CFS have all been set up and had their first meetings. I attended the first meeting of the research group last week

So I assume that these initiatives will all continue as planned under the new Secretary of State – the Rt Hon Stephen Barclay MP
