Island's ME care described as 'pitiful'

Investment would help make improvements says ME charity boss

ME provision on the Isle of Man is "pitiful", but it could be improved with a £100,000 investment - according to the president of charity ME Support.

Phil Gawne was inspired to help by his daughter Kitty - her symptoms started when she was just 13-years-old.

ME Support's compiled a business case which aims to polish the Island's current offering for the 300 people on Island who've been diagnosed with the disorder.  

That's been submitted to the Department of Health and Social Care for review.
