Norway's Directorate of Health Apologises for Treatment of ME Patients
European ME Alliance - Norway's Directorate of Health Apologises to ME Patients for Poor Treatment A statement from the Norwegian Directorate of Health has been received where they apologise for not having provided the necessary and proper health services to persons with ME. Such a public apology from a governmental health agency has never occurred before. Bjørn Guldvog, Deputy Director General of theNorwegian Directorate of Health made the following statement "Jeg tror at vi, i for liten grad, har klart å møte menneskene som har kronisk utmattelsessyndrom på en god nok måte. Jeg tror at det er riktig å si at vi ikke har utviklet en god nok helsetjeneste for disse, og det beklager jeg." "I think that we have not cared for people with ME to a great enough extent. I think it is correct to say that we have not established proper health care services for these people, and I regret that." Can you see similar happening in the UK?
