    Hopefully someone will apply for the post! We don't seem to be an attractive bunch. Did the UK biobank manage to recruit a nurse does anyone know?

    Merged thread

    For a bit of Friday positivity. The numbers for this fundraiser are rising, nearing £20,000 now.

    I think it was said they’d start looking into hiring at the halfway mark?

    I think it was announced in June that they’d changed their mind and were going ahead on recruiting starting with a 3 month contract. Which could be extended depending on funds being raised.

    It was more rhetorical ie we need #MEAction in the uk or there is no action IMO, which I find very frustrating

    Ahhh I get you! The question mark had me all confused :laugh: thanks for clarifying. I do think and hope that #MEAction UK can support a greater array of grassroots campaigning and enable more involvement from the housebound through accessible online activism.
