Giving advice

editorial image

Readers may be familiar, some at first hand, with the considerable challenges faced by those affected by the chronic disabling condition myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

Our booklet, Newly diagnosed with ME, shares key information and advice about the diagnosis, symptoms and management of ME.

Endorsed by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE), it empowers patients to be an active partner in their own care.

Developed in consultation with healthcare professionals and our patient and carer reference group, the booklet is designed to be shared with your GP.

It can be downloaded for free at or ordered by calling Action for ME on 0117 927 9551.
