    The Scottish Health Department has posted an interim statement advising caution over the suitability of Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) in treating ME/CFS and has reiterated the earlier statement from NICE cautioning against use of GET in Post/Long-Covid.

    Following a review of the evidence behind existing recommendations of GET as a suitable therapeutic treatment for ME/CFS, Health Improvement Scotland’s Health Technologies Group produced a rapid response in August reporting the conflicting reports of effectiveness for GET.

    This has now been released in tandem with an update to the webpage for the Scottish Good Practice Statement on ME/CFS.

    This is very muted but still a positive that should influence the NICE committee and Cochrane review.
