    Basically promoting PACE and unaware of the issues with the trial. Also they seem happy to spin a null result with Sharpe's excuses for failure.

    The last NHS direct one on PACE was similarly bad I think,

    I'm waiting for an NHS Direct article that links CFS to POTS and that informs the public CFS sufferers cannot donate blood, umbilical cord, bone marrow.

    That might be wishful thinking though, as it would be educating the public.

    PACE is much more simple. Cut 'n paste, and tow the communist party line, although CBT and GET is attractive to both Marxists and Capitalists.

    Cost effective.
    Simple to follow
    Safe.
    Effective.


    All of which can be sold to the private health care sector for money and the media for propaganda.

    For a minute I thought NIH and about had a cow.
    But not good that it is NHS either. Sorry UK peeps.
    This sucks.
    and it takes so much freakin' energy to deal with ( advocacy wise ) that it makes me want to scream.
    I'll tweet instead.

    We should not read anything about official policy into the article. I suspect they just have a news organization (actually and external company is credited) that feeds them with current stuff. And that will have been fed by the SMC press conference.
