During ME Awareness week 2017 WAMES is launching a challenge to the Welsh Government and NHS Wales to help NHS staff become ‘ME aware’ by developing awareness and training programmes. Read more


Do you wish NHS staff knew more about neurological ME?

Have you had a bad experience because your doctor, nurse, paediatrician etc. didn’t know enough about ME?


Let the Health Boards know:

  • Email with the challenge and tell them about your experience. Include the link to the blog post and keep it short!
  • Retweet WAMES #HelpNHSbeMEaware and #BeMEAware and #postexertionalmalaise tweets
  • Tweet the NHS staff you follow with  e.g.
    My GP (or nurse or paediatrician etc.) doesn’t understand neurological ME & #postexertionalmalaise. Please provide training!  #HelpNHSbeMEaware #BeMEaware
  • Please give training about ME and #postexertionalmalaise to NHS staff #HelpNHSbeMEaware  #BeMEaware
  • Repost the WAMES FB post
  • Post to NHS FB sites
  • Write to staff at their HQ address
  • Add a # BeMEaware poster
