Charity gives view on work capability tests
Raising awareness of ME in the Island could prompt healthcare reforms - and focus minds on how to fund them.
That view from a leading figure in UK charity Action for ME, who appeared before a Tynwald scrutiny committee today.
The charity's chief executive Sonya Chowdhury travelled to the Island to give evidence to the inquiry into the way work capability, or fit-for-work tests, are carried out here.
Local ME support group counterparts have already told the committee how their members feel treated by the system.
Ms Choudhury provided the committee with a UK comparison today (13 May) and said circumstances can be improved here:
