    the more interesting question is whether or not the PACE lead author was a DWP funded advisor at the time of the PACE trial or at the time of application for the grant - and was this properly declared as a conflict of interest in the grant application and later.

    As anyone done that question as an FOIR - I believe someone mentioned in before?

    Hi @Keith Geraghty

    I recall you asked this previously but I forgot to respond.

    Yes Peter White was an advisor on disability living allowance for the DWP during the PACE trial.


    It would be good to ask exactly all the work he had done for the DWP.

    Well done and thanks for your recent publications in the medical journals. Keep up the good work.
