Our submission to NICE Guideline review

In October 2019 we submitted out evidence to NICE as part of their Guideline review.


We submitted 3 papers showing the adverse physiological effects of exercise:

We also submitted:


- the survey from Forward ME showing 80% harm from Graded Exercise Therapy

- our own survey showing 53% of physio interactions result in deterioration,


- details of the interventions that DID help (massage, passive stretching, individual tailored approach)


We’re so pleased to be registered stakeholders. Updates will follow as and when we receive them.
