    This 1 hour presentation provides a lot of insight about why the field of ME and FM is so neglected and why doctors do not learn about these diseases in med school. Well worth of your time.

    There may be one or 2 topics I disagree with (or do not have sufficient information to agree with her), like the use of the IOM criteria, but we can talk about that ;)

    Lots of good advice from Dr Bateman.

    I hope the people who make decisions behind closed doors can be bothered to listen to her very thorough talk though?

    It seems, as ever, the doctors who can see the plight we are in like Dr Bateman, do their utmost to help us, and yet the people who could alter policy are too busy honing their golf handicap to notice.
