This is a short video of the shoe display at the Chasing Competent Care conference at the Stormont Hotel, Belfast on the 6th of June 2016. The conference was organised by Hope 4 ME & Fibro NI, a registered charity run entirely by patient volunteers.

Over 200 pairs of empty shoes were lined up to the side of the speakers’ podium. Each pair of shoes carried a tag with the name of a patient unable to participate in their once-active lives due to ME and/or fibromyalgia.
