Isle of Man: Improved ME / CFS Care On The Horizon After Linda’s Visit!

Update provided by Isle of Man ME Support Group.

On Monday, Celia Marshall Chair of the Isle of Man ME Support Group, said on Manx Radio that improved care for ME / CFS patients could soon be on the horizon. She says talks are on-going with the Department of Health and Social Care about what services could be provided, but nothing is yet decided. Her comments follow the visit of Linda to the Island last week.

Ms Marshall says more professional knowledge of M.E. is badly needed: hear more.
Last week Linda visited the Island of Man by invitation of the local ME Support Group. She delivered a message of hope to the 350 ME / CFS sufferers of the Island and Members of Parliament (Tynwald) were shown a detailed presentation of the crippling impact of ME / CFS to a person’s life. The Support Group invited her in the hope that her visit would act as a catalyst for improvements in care for local patients. Linda hopes the talks made a lasting impression: hear more.

One of the Island’s ME / CFS sufferers is Manxman Nigel Brown, who says the current system falls far short of what’s needed: hear more.

On an international tour of 6 different countries, Linda Tannenbaum is giving talks on the global ‘End ME / CFS project’, a concerted effort to eradicate the illness through ground-breaking research.
