From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history

Phil Murray was diagnosed with ME/CFS in 1997, and has been mainly in remission since 2007. Phil has worked extensively with Westcare UK, sat on the ME patient advisory group for the ME/CFS Epidemiology and Genomics Alliance (MEGA), sponsored by ME Research UK,[1] attended the NICE guidelines scoping meeting in 2018, and is co-organiser for the Bristol Millions Missing protests,[2] in 2018 & 2019. Phil has appeared in local radio & TV speaking for the need for more biomedical research into the illness, and remains on the Patient Advisory group to the UK CFS/ME Research Collaborative (CMRC).[3]

In November 2018, Phil became a trustee of the UK patient group, Action for ME.[4]

An interview from Phil's 1998 appointment at Bristol's Royal Infirmary was featured in the medical training app Speaking Clinically,[5] under "General Medicine, "Chronic Fatigue Syndrome," and "The Exhausted Athlete". It featured the clear reasons for post-exertional malaise, and the delay before the effects are felt.
