    Hi Joan, in the email you got, is there anything that says 'Please Click on the Signup Sheet to schedule your appointment' if so click on the Signup sheet and there maybe other locations listed there ? (I have heard from people that Northern Ireland should be avaliable!)

    Polly - I think they are contacting home draws next, in addition to the venue list they asked in this e-mail if we had requested a home draw,to reply to the e-mail advising them.

    Opted for Gloucestershire venue which is approx 1 hour + drive from home - but it all depends on what date they set.
    May have to rearrange - I rely on someone to take me.
    Anyone else thinking of Gloucester?

    Anyone who has recieved the email who needs a home draw (whether they have already told them this or not) should reply to the email &put "Home Draw!" in the subject line.

    I didn't get an email either! I could easily get a lift to Manchester. I wonder whether they've got me down for a homedraw too?

    Has anyone else not recieved an email? I'm wondering whether I should get in contact with them.

    I still haven't received an email, but I did ask for a home draw right at the beginning. Has anyone else whom did the same still not received the update email? Maybe the people whom requested home visit won’t.

    Don't panic too much there are LOTS of times still available for Manchester -only a few have gone. You give you name &email address when you book, it's tempting just to give you the link but I don't know if that will confuse things?!

    We always seem to have this problem with emails, mine was recieved at 11.23am anyone got a different time? just would show that they are ending them out individually if we all had different times &might explain the delay some people have...

    Maybe they've ot me down for a home draw, when I originally applied i said there's a chance I'd need a home draw depending on how far away I was from the draw locations as I wouldnt be able to travel on my own. I'd rather just get a lift to Manchester, I've been ill lately so maybe it's for the best I get a home draw, at least that way I'm guaranteed to be seen.

    Thanks sproggle.

    I was diagnosed as Moderate to Severe ME in 2004.
    Am I correct in thinking that some of those included in the XMRV UK tests do not have ME/CFS ?
    They are perhaps partners parents etc.!
    If so, how would we know what percentage were actually ME/CFS sufferers. This could also affect the final analysis.
    To those who have already tested at Ashford - Do we have to confirm we have the illness?
    Maybe I have got this all wrong - happens these days.
    Tricia - confused in N Oxfordshire.
