No change announced to NICE Guideline on ME/CFS – next review will be August 2013

The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence will not be carrying out a major review of their August 2007 Guideline on ME/CFS – having delayed the decision until after the results of the PACE study were published last month.

Announcing the no further review decision to stakeholders yesterday, NICE said they won’t be looking at the guideline next until August 2013.
