Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) means "muscle pain plus inflammation of the brain/spinal cord", a chronic neurological illness, but "the majority of patients presenting with symptoms of ME in the UK are still referred to psychotherapists for treatment" (Dr Ian Gibson). A policy review is overdue.

More details
The NHS provides psychiatric therapies for what it refers to as "CFS/ME". These therapies are often ineffective and sometimes make patients worse. They are the result of a Myalgic Encephalomyelitis policy heavily influenced by psychiatrists who are skeptical about the existence of Myalgic Encephalomyelitis. It is time for a policy re-think about the effectiveness (and cost-effectiveness) of current treatment.
See: http://www.tymestrust.org (for the effect of current policy on children with ME.
Deadline 13 March 2018
