Dr Charles Shepherd will be at a meeting with representatives from the Royal College of General Practitioners (RCGP) on Thursday morning (22nd June) at the House of Lords.
The meeting has been arranged by the Countess of Mar to discuss all aspects of ME/CFS that are relevant to primary care – the importance of early and accurate diagnosis and sensible advice on management in particular.
If anyone has any points regarding early diagnosis and good management, or examples of good/bad management in general practice that would be useful to raise at this meeting, please forward them to us via our head office (firstname.lastname@example.org), or leave a message below this blog or via our Facebook page.
