Families affected by M.E. coming to BBC’s File on Four

June 21, 2017

The results of an Action for M.E. survey into the experiences of families affected by M.E. who’ve faced false accusations of abuse, neglect and fabricated/induced illness will be revealed as part of the BBC’s File on Four programme.

Concerned about the increasing numbers of families affected by M.E. who face false accusations because of their child’s illness, Action for M.E.’s Children’s Services Team recently ran a survey to find out more about the experiences of families who have faced such accusations.

The survey results, and interviews with some of the families affected that we have been supporting, will be featured on the award-winning current affairs documentary next Tuesday (27 June) at 8pm.

You’ll be able to listen to the programme online.
