The main item is a talk by Dr Ros Vallings entitled "Overview of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME".

Doctors are also allowed to claim back for study leave allocation: This event has been allocated - day. The rebate to doctors therefore is 98.62 euro

The main reason of course why a doctor should attend this conference is to broaden their knowledge of ME which in turn will benefit their patients with ME. We therefore would request that you, if in a position to do so, bring the particulars of this conference to your GP's attention.
