    Don't think he's associated with any CFS services at the moment? Here's a profile page: http://www.psych.ox.ac.uk/team/PIs/michael-sharpe

    How did they calculate costs of CBT/GET in the cost-effectiveness paper?

    They provide some figures and graphs, none of which include data for a control group (well there's one that compares CBT and a psycho-educational intervention, but there was no real difference between them).

    Mainly it's anecdotes (most seemed to be from teens, even though the unit is for 14-adult):

    They are the dodgy PACE trial outcome figures, aren't they, if SMC is added to CBT/GET, whereby 'full recovery' can mean deterioration in disability after treatment.
