Lack of support for ME sufferers makes life even harder

By Sally Simmonds
Last updated Fri 4 Jul 2014

One third of those affected by the condition ME, or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, have no access to specialist care. This worrying statistic has come to light through a new study by the University of Southampton.

Experts say the illness still isn't being taken seriously. One sufferer says the lack of support makes living with ME even harder for him.

Sally Simmonds spoke to Tim Reynolds, who has ME, Clare McDermott, Research Fellow at the University of Southampton and Mary-Jane Willows from the Association of Young People with ME.
