A Letter To Professor Mark Baker – Centre For Guidelines Director, National Institute For Health And Care Excellence



From Invest in ME Research.


In July 2017 Invest in ME Research responded to the NICE 10 year surveillance (2017) – Chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis.

Recently, whilst preparing for the planned Stakeholders’ Workshop (16 January 2018) to review the NICE guidelines for ME it has, in our opinion, been necessary to make one request to NICE which we feel cannot await the results of the NICE guidelines review.

We have requested that NICE remove the recommendations for CBT and GET immediately from the existing guidelines due to the possible deleterious effects on people with ME.

This request follows on from our submission to NICE last year where we highlighted the consequences of continued backing for CBT and GET.
