At the 5th Invest in ME International ME/CFS Conference held in May, this year, a proposal was announced for the establishing of a Centre of Excellence for ME in Norfolk. To the best of my knowledge, Invest in ME had undertaken no national consultation with ME patients before drawing up its proposals.

Today I have published a review of Invest in MEs proposal prepared by Chris Douglas.

A text version of this review is also published on ME agenda.


Review of the Invest in ME proposal for a Centre of Excellence for ME in Norfolk

By Chris Douglas

Introduction

In August 2010, Invest in ME (IiME) published a document titled: A New Era in ME/CFS Research: An Opportunity for Major Progress in Diagnosis, Treatment and Research into Myalgic Encephalomyelitis.

It is assumed that this document is a precursor to a more formal and detailed proposal that will be used to secure consultative input and financial commitment to the project.

The following review highlights specific areas in which the proposal could be strengthened if, in particular, it is to maximise commitment from potential financial donors.
