Many from the ME community have voiced concerns about health assessors displaying an insufficient understanding of ME and not properly applying the assessment criteria. These factors, combined with tests which often leave a patient exhausted for weeks afterwards, mean that we would like to see assessments become much more accessible and accurate for those with ME.
If you are a constituent and have had such an experience please do let me know by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. These cases will be raised with the Minister.
It would be helpful if you used the subject heading “DWP Concerns for people with ME”.
