    The name of these solicitors are familiar to me in the context of ME. I think they must have experience of representing people with ME.

    Time for a class action suit?

    I note that the solicitor has made an error in that he claims tht NICE have removed GET from the guidelines. It may place some pressure on them to do so................(and pigs might fly, of course :rolleyes: )

    I just wrote to Royds Withy King personal injury solicitors asking for a clarification of the circumstances under which an ME/CFS patient treated with GET / CBT could start a law suit. With their permission, I will post up their reply.

    You have no idea how long I waited for this!! Until lawyers get involve we will not be taken as serious, I hope plp start suing if possible, and this never happens to another disease EVER again!!! and some plp loose licenses, institutions penalized and the money returned for real biological research.... One can dream.

    I seem to remember some stories of children under 16 with ME/CFS who were taken away from their parents (against their parents' will), and forced to do GET and CBT in hospital by psychologists woking under Prof Esther Crawley, and then when the forced physical exercise made their ME/CFS much worse, Crawley's crew just abandoned the child, and pretended that the deterioration in ME/CFS was nothing to do with their dangerous GET treatment.

    These sort of cases might be prime material for a no-win no-fee personal injury case.

    Royds Withy King kindly replied to my email, and outlined the sort of circumstances in which litigation regarding a harmful medical treatment you received would be possible:
