ME is not MUPS: Change Dutch Health Council Committee and adhere to the advisory report assignment.

Among ME patients there is no public support for a Dutch Health Council Committee with members denying ME as a chronic, complex, multisystem disease (ICD G93.3) or equating it to “MUPS”, (Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms), a functional syndrome, a somatoform disorder (ICD F45), neurasthenia (ICD F48) or unexplained fatigue (ICD R53).

From Invest in ME Research July newsletter (received by email, not yet uploaded to website).

Petition to the Dutch Health Council




Invest in ME Research invited the Dutch Health Council to the 2017 conference events in London - and, sharing much in common with UK establishment organisations, they did not reply.

Perhaps this may get their attention.

A Dutch petition -

ME is not MUPS: Change Dutch Health Council Committee and adhere to the advisory report assignment
https://meisgeensolk.petities.nl/?locale=en

The Dutch Guidelines are based on NICE - and has been made part of a broader Medically Unexplained Physical Symptoms (MUPS) guideline.

As the Dutch state - 'BPS proponents/Dutch PACE colleagues with vested interests, who are still advocating CBT/GET as safe and effective and as the only "evidence based" treatment, should have no place in deciding future health policy for ME patients and how to spend valuable research money.'

The Dutch Health Council report will go to parliament and determine the care and research spending for the next decade - a similar corrupted scenario being shaped as was planned for the UK.

The Dutch are suffering in the same way as UK patients by the negligence and flaws in establishment organisations.

1200 signatures are needed to reach the goal of 10,000.

Dear all, Dutch need your help. Please consider signing and sharing.

To stop BPS proponents/Dutch PACE colleagues from hijacking ME and rebranding it as MUS, functional somatic syndrom, BDS, SSD or whatever they come up with.
The influence of those who BPS proponents is huge. Like in the UK, it are these people who again and again are in policy making committees/decision positions.
The Dutch Health Council has put several on a committee that is writing a advisory report to dutch Parliament.

Please speak up on behalf of all of us.
These BPS have huge conflicts of interests (still claim CBT/GET are safe, and effective/evidence based).
We just want our lives back. That will not happen if those with vested interest are determining our future care...
We cannot continue to go without proper care and have BPS proponents spread what is basically an unproven hypothesis, that is hampering all progress.

Time for change, but we will need your help.
Please. spread this link, we need 1103 signatures to reach the goal of 10,000
Together we can do this, but we need your help!

It would mean a lot if you would take 1 minute and be one of the remaining 1004 signatures we need to reach the goal of presenting 10,000 signatures to the Dutch Health Council. https://meisgeensolk.petities.nl/?locale=en

This is what Invest in ME wrote about this petition in their July Newsletter
