More than 400 people attended the first meeting of the ME Alliance Northern Ireland (MEANI) at the Lansdowne Hotel in Belfast week. Supported by local M.E. groups across Northern Ireland, MEANI will campaign for services for people with M.E.
The meeting was addressed by Dr Derek Enlander, born in Belfast and now based in New York, who spoke about his work with M.E./CFS patients. Following the meeting, Dr Enlander attended a Health and Social Care Board workshop in Antrim to discuss developing an NHS service for M.E. in Northern Ireland.
Designate Health Minister Jim Wells, the Irish ME Trust's Michael O’Reilly and social policy researcher Dr Jay Wiggan, Queen’s University, also spoke at the meeting.
