ABOUT #MEACTION SCOTLAND

#MEAction Scotland is a volunteer-led group determined to raise awareness of ME in Scotland and campaign for health equality for the patient community. We are an affiliate of #MEAction UK

Responsibility for delivery of  health services and policy decisions in Scotland are devolved to the Scottish Parliament. By being Scotland-specific, #MEAction Scotland can engage directly with Members of Scottish Parliament (MSPs) and NHS Scotland health boards. Where projects affect the whole of the UK, we work closely with the UK team.
