    Theresa Villiers MP asked the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care if the NHS could roll out more 'PACE treatment' for people with myalgic encephalomyelitis.

    Can someone in her constituency point out that it's pacing we want, not PACE? We don't want ill-informed politicians setting us back.

    Also, pacing isnt treatment. It doesnt help anyone recover, pacing can help prevent us getting worse. Other factors are involved in deterioration too, so pacing isnt a guarantee to avoid deterioration.

    The Pace trial was cynically named 'PACE' to fool people, especially patients, that the study was about pacing.

    It may have come up in another thread but I think it deserves its own thread, @adambeyoncelowe! Often, new things crop up in long-running discussions that need flagging up in their own right. Perhaps if you add the MP's name and constituency to the title, their constituents will notice and will start writing in.

    I'm not sure how to edit the title?

    Below the title of your thread, and over to the right of the screen, there's a dropdown menu called 'Thread tools', which includes an option to edit your title. :)

    Also from the other thread posted by me
    "Have just emailed her to say we don't want the 'therapies' recommended by the PACE trial, that in fact we want them removed from the NICE guidelines now, and sent her a link to the petition."

    eta: it might be easier just to read the other thread
