Forward ME group minutes from 12th Feb 2014: http://www.forward-me.org.uk/12th February 2014.htm These minutes are well worth a read. They include interesting and important discussions about the difficulties faced by families with children with ME in the UK (e.g. child protections issues, inappropriate treatments, problems with education, & the SMILE trial.) It seems that these issues are common, and there are many similar cases being handled by a number of the attendees at the meeting. Among the subjects highlighted in the minutes are: Various issues for families with children with ME: Inappropriate treatment, child protection issues & problems with education. SMILE Trial and the Lightning Process. UK Research Collaborative. Rituximab. UK welfare benefits: PIP and WCA. Dr Nigel Speight re patients in the Netherlands and Germany.
