Dr Charles Shepherd Stands Down From The NICE Guideline Committee With Immediate Effect

From The ME Association.

Following publication of the draft of the new NICE guideline on ME/CFS for Stakeholder consultation in November 2020 it has become increasingly difficult for me to fulfil some key parts of my role at the ME Association (MEA). 

In particular, this relates to providing information and commenting on key issues of concern to the ME/CFS patient community that also form part of the NICE guideline and at the same time not creating what NICE regard as a conflict of interest*.
