    This is a Golden opportunity to increase awareness and tell our MP's about the neglect. Please write to your MP and ask them to RSVP and attend.

    Many thanks to ME/FM Action, Gordon Broderick, Dr Carolyn Bennett and other volunteers.

    Not that I'm going, but I would think a later start time for most would be better?

    @Gginges, I can answer this because I have exchanged messages with the MP who came up with the idea. Members of Parliament are busy bunchesand most of them have eening engagement or need family time. according to Dr Bennett, the best way to reach them is to pay for their meal (!) and organize a breakfast.

    The timing of is is likely to be before the opening of the proeedings at the House of Commons.

    The poster does not make it very clear but it is aimed at MP's at the House of Commons.

    Just bouncing ideas, would it think it's a good idea to start a petition asking the health minister to attend?

    Done, and I have passed it on to other patients I know as well. Thank you for posting this.

    I just did a quick Google search for MP and my home area, and got his e-mail right away. There were two MP's listed, but it was clearly marked which one was at the House of Commons address.

    The more people they hear from the better. Hopefully we can help them realize that this is a major issue that affects many of the voters in their areas.

    Done.

    Could this invitation be posted in a format that's readable without logging in? Many who aren't members visit this site.

    I saw it circulating on FB. Truly, this meeting is a great awareness event but its success will depend on attendance.
