Gildernew - ME patients need more support

Published: 24 October, 2017

Michelle Gildernew MP has called for more support for patients afflicted with ME, following a public discussion in Westminster on the treatment options for patients and the need for enhanced public awareness of the illness.

The Fermanagh South Tyrone MP said:

"Today was an important opportunity to hear the concerns of those suffering from ME and to better understand how their experiences can lead to improved medical support.

"It is clear that there is not enough information or public discussion on this issue, particularly as welfare cuts are further deepening hardship for carers and the disabled.

"The British Government must end its assault on patients, and put the necessary support in place to give patients and carers the support they deserve."
