My story

[p]ME/CFS is an illness more misunderstood than any other. Yet most people seem to know someone whose health has been devastated by this illness, often starting as a teenager or young person, with long term unmet needs, seemingly being overlooked.[/p][p]There are very limited resources in the NHS for the treatment and care of people with ME/CFS. The ME Trust is the only charity dedicated to providing medical care for people with ME, which is why I doing a sponsored Skydive to support the growing work of The ME Trust.[/p][p]I worked as a village GP for 28 years, journeying alongside many families struggling over that time.Then I had the privilege of "joined up working" at Burrswood Hospital, where a team of Counsellors, Physios, Chaplains and Nurses offered love, care and expertise to many people with ME/CFS. In that caring environment, where all aspects of a person's health and 'being' were acknowledged, amazing advances in people's health were often witnessed.[/p][p]The ME Trust continues to offer that 'whole person care' for those suffering ME/CFS, and their carers and families, through a combination of telephone consultations, home visits and outpatient clinic in East Sussex which opened in 2018. I help manage the clinic in my role as Clinical Governance lead.[/p]

You are an amazing person and so committed to improving the lives of people with ME. Hoping this dive is more awesome than scary and that others are so inspired that you raise £20k rather than £2k although the latter would still be wonderful!
