    MEA website poll on severe ME/CFS (August 2017)

    We have a new quick poll about Severe ME and the services you and your carer might receive.

    You can locate the poll on the homepage of our website:http://www.meassociation.org.uk/

    Just scroll down the page about mid-way and you should see it.

    It allows multiple answers this month, so you should have little difficulty answering.

    "If you have severe ME, which of the following services and DWP benefits have you (or your carer) received?"


    Current results:

    • If you have severe ME, which of the following services and DWP benefits have you (or your carer) received?
      • GP Home Visits (15%, 13 Votes)

      • Hospital Home Visits (2%, 2 Votes)

      • Hospital Out Patient Management (7%, 6 Votes)

      • Hospital In Patient Management (0%, 0 Votes)

      • NHS Care Plan (0%, 0 Votes)

      • Social Care (10%, 9 Votes)

      • Personal Independence Payment (PIP)(27%, 23 Votes)

      • Carers Allowance (5%, 4 Votes)

      • Disabled Facilities Grant (2%, 2 Votes)

      • Blue Badge (27%, 23 Votes)

      • None of the above (5%, 4 Votes)
      Total Voters: 34
    As many of the answers only apply to the UK, this survery is only really applicable to people with severe ME/CFS here in the UK

    @charles shepherd, would it be possible to sort out the way the survey calculates percentages.

    For example, 23 out of the 34 voters selected Blue Badge, but this is listed as 27%. I think it is counting percentage of votes cast, not of voters, which is nonsense when people can choose more than one option.

    Yes agreed. Had to think about it a moment, but it does need to be % voters. So for example if Blue Badge had shown 100%, it would mean every voter had voted for it, not matter what else they had voted for.

    I will have to pass this to our website supremo - I don't have anything to do with how the MEA website functions!
