    Bristol Cable article from July 2017 still accepting comments
    An excellent article from last year:
    "
    Trials on certain treatments of chronic fatigue syndrome, or ME, have pitted patients against researchers, and scientists against scientists – amid furious clashes on the validity of landmark studies into the condition.
    Words: Lorna Stephenson
    "

    People are still able to comment.

    Maybe someone could add a plug for S4ME, update of what has happened since?

    Just been having a look to see what other local papers there are in Bristol and was a bit taken aback to find on the Bath Chronicle website , (in addition to the usual, Jobs, Book an Ad, Crossword etc) a tab 'Psychotherapy'.
    http://www.bathchronicle.co.uk/

    This takes you to a website 'TimeWith' where you answer a few questions and give them your email address and they send you contact details of relevant therapists. (This company is based in London and cover the whole of the UK.)

    But does anyone else find this odd?

    eta: found the same thing on Bristol Post website, and the Clevedon Mercury(Somerset Live)

    I assume it's a paid for ad. Presumably a company that therapists pay to find them clients.

    Well, you may be right, but I took it to be an ad. Especially as all the other things in that list across the top of the page are ads, so why would that one not be? I don't want to argue, I'm just a bit bemused.

    From Linkedin information, it looks like some tech/media savvy guys had a bright idea to make it easier to connect with a therapist to suit your needs in your local area, and formed the company last year. They are advertising nationwide and don't appear to have any specific connections to Bristol/Bath.

    It reminds me of one of those tradesman's websites where you type in your requirements and a local plumber/carpenter gets in touch with some extortionate quote. :rolleyes:

    Looking at the OHC;
    "Introduction to the OHC Medical Department
    Having a background in psychology and nutritional medicine as well as conventional medicine,
    Dr Hembry is perfectly placed to work in conjunction with the psychology and nutrition teams at The Optimum Health Clinic. Some of the areas she can help with are:..."

    "Initial appointments must be with Nicola in person at her clinic in Bristol, but thereafter much can be done by way of telephone consultations, and she can organise tests and most treatments locally."

    "Dr Nicola Hembry is the Medical Director of Integrated Health Screening Ltd, which is a private integrated medical practice based in Clifton, Bristol."
