That this House recognises Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Awareness Week, from 10 to 16 May 2021, which aims to highlight the impact this condition has on approximately 250,000 people across the UK; commends the endless dedication of campaigners and charities working to raise awareness of ME as a serious and debilitating neurological condition; welcomes the recent publication of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence revised draft guidance on ME which has acknowledged that graded exercise therapy is harmful for people with ME and should not be offered as a treatment for the condition; and calls on the UK Government to take urgent and significant steps to improve health and social care provision for people with ME.
