Statement from "Forward ME" - the collaboration of charities for ME

As charities supporting people with M.E. we have been actively campaigning for NICE to remove the recommendation of Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) in the guideline for M.E./CFS.

 

Patient surveys conducted by charities and groups including Forward-ME have repeatedly shown the harm that can be caused by these therapies, even when delivered by an M.E. Specialist. While this guideline is under review we are calling for NICE to remove the recommendation and add a health warning stating the risks associated with GET and CBT.

 

One of the main considerations during the guideline review is the evidence for GET in particular. It is therefore appropriate that they take this action in response to the legitimate questions and concerns that have been raised over its safety and effectiveness.
