    "
    One of the ME Association’s recent research initiatives was to critically examine the theoretical basis and clinical application of the use of Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) and Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) in ME/CFS.

    We felt that a closer examination of these therapies was vital, particularly now that evidence is needed to better inform decisions relating to the revision of the NICE clinical guideline on the treatment of ME/CFS. And who better to do this work than Dr Keith Geraghty?

    Passion for good research

    Dr Geraghty is an Honorary Research Fellow at the Centre for Primary Care within the Division of Population Health, Health Services Research & Primary Care at University of Manchester, where much of his work focuses on ME/CFS.

    He is a nationally recognised expert on the disease having published several scientific papers on the efficacy of treatments for ME/CFS; the doctor-patient relationship; and harms associated with the biopsychosocial model."

    In this interview, Dr Shepherd explains why M.E. research is so important, and why he is asking for your support for the Ramsay Research Fund Christmas Appeal.

    Keeping up with Dr Charles Shepherd when he is in full flow is almost impossible. His enthusiasm about research into M.E. is infectious.

    He knows so much, he’s involved in so many different areas, and he’s so eager to tell you all about it. All at the same time.

    He’s like a fountain bubbling over with knowledge. And you never quite know where your conversation will take you."
