Some revelations about shenanigans at NICE - the IAPT team is in charge of the NICE guidelines for ME/CFS - as flagged up by Hope 4 Fibro & ME Northern Ireland - back in 2017!!! According to the IAPT webpage it's still listing the "CFS/ME" guideline as under their control - that's the psychologists and psychiatrists in control AGAIN - the IAPT team commissioned the National Collaborating Centre for Primary Care (NCC-PC) to do the guideline research and development - NCC-PC is run by the Royal College of GPs. Who are the main group whining about the fact the existing guidelines barely mention mental health. "Topic experts" from this group are the ones who already filtered out everything biomedical, everything international and included PACE, FINE, FITNET-NHS and everything else that used the Oxford criteria. - There is a National Collaborating Centre for Chronic Conditions - our guidelines *should* be developed by them. They also cover neurology. They are organized by the Royal College of Physicans not the Royal College of GPs. Who can we raise this abuse of process to? NICE haven't just chosen crap evidence and inappropriate guideline members - they've also set out with a pro-CBT agenda. Totally unacceptable. Who are NICE accountable to? Any contact with the new director now Mark Baker has moved on? NHS England?
