    Letter from the Minister for Medical Care

    To the President of the House of Representatives of the States General
    The Hague, 11 December 2018


    The Health Council advises:

    - More scientific research into ME / CFS with emphasis on the substantiation of the diagnosis, the development of the disease and the treatment of ME / CFS.
    - Train healthcare providers about ME / CFS and what they can mean for patients with the disease.
    - The opening of an outpatient clinic for ME / CFS with associated care networks and research groups.
    - Medical assessors in the context of disability insurance, the Social Support Act, the Long-term Care Act and the Participation Act point out that ME / CFS is a serious illness that is accompanied by substantial functional limitations and the choice of a patient for no cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) or exercise therapy. do not have to be regarded as 'not adequate recovery behavior'.
