By Dr Charles Shepherd, Hon. Medical Adviser, ME Association.

I am aware that some people with ME/CFS have a number of concerns about the amount of time and effort we are devoting to people with Post-COVID Fatigue and Post/Long-COVID Syndromes.

In particular:

— the possibility that people with post-COVID fatigue and post/long-COVID syndromes are going to receive preferential treatment from the NHS for very similar health problems that occur in people with ME/CFS.

— people with post-COVID fatigue and post/long-COVID syndromes are being cautioned against the use of graded exercise treatment (GET) whereas NICE has refused to remove this treatment option from the current clinical guideline for ME/CFS.

— the considerable amount of research and research funding that is being directed at post-COVID fatigue and post/long-COVID syndromes compared to what has happened to government-funded research into ME/CFS.
