    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.

    I'm tempted to quote some sections of text, but it all needs quoting.

    It's a short enough read, really just an outline :)
