    A journalist is interested in the chronology of the NICE CFS/ME guidelines. He thinks they were reviewed in 2011. Can anyone post any links on any updates/announcements since they released in 2007. If you prefer you can private message me or email me Tom Kindlon @ Gmail dot com.

    Do they just mean when NICE responded to PACE, saying that these results supported their current guidelines and meant no review was necessay?

    Actually, I found this, which I don't think I'd read previously:

    A review consultation took place in late 2010 with NICE initially proposing that the guidelines didn't need updating. There was a two week consultation period - only open to stakeholders - in November 2010, and then in March 2011 NICE published the outcome of the review, which concluded that - surprise, surprise - there were no grounds to update the guidance at that time.

    The March 2011 document can be found here (although @Esther12 has already posted a link) and other documents relating to the review can be downloaded from the CFS/ME page on the NICE website - under the history tab, in the column on the right of the page (in the section titled 'Review Documents').

    I hope this is helpful.
