    From Action for ME email:

    Puttnam dubs NHS report 'a remarkable confession'Multi-award-winning film producer David Puttnam , whose 1981 film Chariots of Fire has been digitally re-mastered as part of the official London 2012 Festival celebrations, has called Action for M.E.’s damning report on commissioning of specialist services, a ‘remarkable confession by the NHS.’
    Action for M.E. sent Freedom of Information Act requests to all Primary Care Trusts (PCT) in England, Health Boards in Scotland and Wales and Health and Social Care Trusts in Northern Ireland inquiring about what specialist services they commissioned for M.E. patients.
    Its resulting report Ignorance, injustice and neglect is available to download in full or as an Executive summary .
    Lord Puttnam , who has been affected by M.E. for more than 20 years, said: “This report is a remarkable confession by the NHS of its failure to provide suitable care for people with M.E. This neglect has gone on for far too long. I urge (Heath Secretary) Andrew Lansley to address this issue in a serious way.â€
    The responses from your local PCT, board or care trust to our key questions are on pages 27 to 29 of theIgnorance, injustice and neglect report. An overview of the results throughout the UK and our conclusion are on pages 16 to 26.
