Discussing M.E. on BBC Five Live today

February 28, 2018

"Why do we know so little about M.E.?" asks Gary Burgess, guest editor on today's Afternoon Edition on BBC Five Live.

Very recently diagnosed, and aiming to explore issues around diagnosis and symptom-management, Gary will be putting this question to Prof Julia Newton, Action for M.E. Medical Advisor and Deputy Medical Director, Newcastle upon Tyne Hospitals.

Unrest director Jen Brea will also appear on the programme, talking about her award-winning documentary and awareness-raising campaign; and Action for M.E. volunteer Emily Beardall will be in discussion with Gary about the challenges of managing the condition, and how he has been coping so far.

You can tune into the programme online at 1pm today.
