Breaking News: NICE decides to Fully Update its guideline on ME/CFS!

NICE have this morning announced they will now commence a FULL REVIEW of the guideline for ME/CFS, effectively overturning previous expert advice not to update it.

The following has been taken from the NICE website, and was shared across social media:

Sir Andrew Dillon, NICE chief executive, said:

“The strong message from stakeholders was that the continuing debate about the causes of this condition and the best approach to treatment argued for a review of the current guideline.”

“We will now recruit a guideline committee which will include people with the condition and their carers, the healthcare professionals who treat them and the organisations which commission that treatment. As with all the guidance we produce, we will also ensure that stakeholders have the opportunity to provide evidence and insights throughout the development of the guideline.”
