0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


NICE has promised to review its current guidelines on ME/CFS, which is not scheduled to be completed until 2020.  Meanwhile it has left the current guidelines in place, despite the recommendations for treatments that are known to be harmful.

Stop harming patients.  Take CBT/GET out of ME/CFS guidelines now!  Continuing to recommend GET in the face of evidence of harm amounts to MEDICAL ABUSE and VIOLATION OF HUMAN RIGHTS.
