Examples of concerns raised by professional bodies about the NICE (draft) Guideline CG53 on “CFS/ME”

by Margaret Williams  | 13 March 2009

In his Approved Judgment in the Judicial Review of the NICE Clinical Guideline 53 on “CFS/ME” released today, the Judge (Mr Justice Simon) stated:

“The circumstances are not such as to lead a fair minded and informed observer to conclude that there was a real risk of bias among the members of the GDG.”

Commenting on today’s Judgment, NICE’s Press Statement says: “Professor Peter Littlejohns, NICE Clinical and Public Health Director, responded to the High Court judgment saying…We are pleased that all members of the GDG and those involved in selecting the GDG were totally exonerated from the unfounded claims made against them”
