    I just saw some stuff from NIHR promoting their Patient and Public involvement in research, and it reminded me of this annoying Crawley blog they posted earlier in the year, where she present herself as bravely producing useful research in the face of unreasonable opposition:

    Also, here are some slides from a talk she gave at the NIHR (these are quite interesting - and present Sonya and Action for ME as on her side):

    Crawley is also on an NIHR review board choosing which projects to fund. The projects were approved in the process she was connected to:

    DRF-2016-09-021
    Depression in paediatric chronic fatigue syndrome
    (CFS/ME)
    Fund
    Conditional

    DRF-2017-10-169

    Developing an effective intervention for
    younger children (5-11 years) with CFS/ME
    Fund

    Crawley has talked about how the NIHR 'saved' her. Oh great.

    This is the NIHR page on patient and public involvement. I wonder if there's any way of getting them to engage in debate over the merits of Crawley's work?
