NICE Guideline review: new information from NICE, dated 23 December 2010.

During the public consultation on NICE’s review proposal for clinical guideline 53 on the diagnosis and management of CFS/ME, a number of stakeholders advised that the results of the PACE Trial are due to be published in 2011. As this significant trial may affect NICE’s final decision regarding whether its existing guideline warrants an update, NICE is deferring its announcement until further information is available. This is so that the conclusions made by NICE are as accurate and informed as possible. In the interests of high quality patient care, it is important that health professionals continue to adhere to the existing recommendations as they represent best clinical practice for the NHS.
