Boy from Halifax's year long wait for ME treatment

A mum from Halifax says she has been let down by the NHS after a year-long wait to get her son referred to a specialist for Chronic Fatigue Syndrome - or ME.

Robert Hawkins can no longer go to school, see his friends or play sport after being struck down by the condition, which has completely changed his life.

He has now got a referral to an expert in Manchester, but is still waiting on a date for an appointment.
