The workshop was held so that stakeholders, including patient groups for people with ME/CFS and their carers, could help NICE identify at an early stage the issues they consider most important for the development of the new guideline.
Over 45 people attended the workshop, representing 37 different organisations supporting people with ME/CFS.
NICE has also confirmed the next steps in the development of the new guideline, starting with a further workshop with stakeholder organisations on 25 May to discuss the scope of the guideline. Stakeholders will then have the opportunity to comment on the draft scope between 21 June and 19 July. This will coincide with recruitment to the independent guideline committee, which will also begin on 21 June with adverts posted on the NICE website.
