    When assessing the Australian situation, don't let Prof. Ian Hickie off the hook. He has flown under the accountability radar very successfully, but his influence and culpability from the early 1990s on, both in Australia and internationally, are substantial.

    For a start, he was a co-author on the Fukuda 1994 criteria, and is big on somatisation, including conjuring up a checklist to assess it, known as SPHERE (Somatic and Psychological HEalth REport).

    I don't know for a fact, but I also strongly suspect that he had a major hand in the very controversial draft Australian clinical guidelines issued in 1997 (with the final version coming out in 2003). The draft was basically just the views of the UK branch of the BPS club. It was truly atrocious, and fired up patient anger here big time.

    Somewhere along my very brain foggy road I'd concluded that there must be two Andrew Lloyds working on ME but with very different views. :banghead:
