Admin: Christmas on Read ME UK Events

Posted in Admin, Gilderdale case on December 22, 2008 by meagenda

A peaceful Christmas and better health in the coming year

Let’s hope that 2009 will be the year that sees proper recognition of this illness and of the desperate need for funding biomedical research.

Read ME UK Events and ME agenda sites will remain active over the Christmas and New Year period.  I’d like to thank readers for their support and encouragement over the past twelve months.

Our thoughts are with the Gilderdale Family.

Royal Society of Medicine: date for ‘Medicine and me’ meeting

Posted in AfME/Action for ME, Royal Society of Medicine on December 13, 2008 by meagenda

The Royal Society of Medicine plans to hold the proposed ‘Medicine and me’ conference on

Saturday 11 July 2009

In AfME’s InterAction magazine, Page 3, CEO’s report, Sir Peter Spencer writes:

“Next year also, patients and carers will be invited to attend the Royal Society of Medicine’s (RSM’s) ‘Medicine and me’ conference on M.E. on Saturday 11 July in London. ‘Medicine and me’ meetings bring together patients, carers, advocates, patient support groups, clinicians and researchers to discuss care and research matters of interest to patients with a specific condition. It will be a great opportunity for face-to-face contact with some of the leading M.E. clinicians and researchers in the land, so I hope those who are well enough will be there. Booking will be essential. Further details will be posted in InterAction, on our website and on the RSM website at

Please note that ‘Medicine and me’ meetings are held for various conditions.
