Protest the JCP for Mental Health (England)

More details on the awful decision making/administration in relation to CFS/ME sufferers in England. This goes completely against the WHO and NICE Guidance. What follows is a quote from the article published by the ME Association and a link to that article.

“The confusion has a considerable impact on patients. For example, we are aware that some patients are being referred to services for ‘medically unexplained symptoms’, under the mistaken assumption that M.E. is a ‘functional somatic syndrome’. Indeed, the Joint Commissioning Panel for Mental Health (England) has recently published guidance stating that ‘Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis’ is a ‘functional somatic syndrome’ [Guidance for commissioners of services for people with medically unexplained symptoms 2017].”
