Dr Charles Shepherd

Dr Charles Shepherd, trustee and medical advisor to the ME Association, accepted our invitation to visit Burrswood and hear about care and treatment of CFS/ME patients at the hospital. Dr Shepherd has had CFS/ME himself for many years and wrote the highly regarded book ‘Living with ME’. He was interested to learn more of Burrswood’s care team approach and ‘came away with an impression of a very caring, supportive and thoughtful service, delivered in a peaceful Christian environment, by people who really care for their patients’. Burrswood warmly welcomes people of all faiths or none. Our Founder Hannah Clifton is Volunteer CFS/ME Patient Liaison at the hospital.
