When you state that people with ME are not able to donate until fully recovered please can you define what “fully recovered” means?
What biomedical tests are available to determine that a person with ME is “fully recovered”?
Could you inform of how and when clinicians perform such tests in order to ensure that a person is "fully recovered" from ME?
Bearing in mind the seriousness of a possible contamination of blood supplies from people with ME please could you indicate what measures are in place to ensure that doctors do enforce testing to ensure that people with ME are "fully recovered" and will not therefore donate blood?
