Lords to debate the PACE Study | Wednesday, 6 February 2013

A short, hour-long debate on the controversial PACE Study has been scheduled to take place in the House of Lords Grand Committee Room next Wednesday (6 February).

The Countess of Mar will ask Her Majesty’s Government what assessment they have made of the effects of the PACE trial (Pacing, graded Activity and Cognitive behaviour therapy: a randomised Evaluation) on provision of health and social care and welfare benefits for people with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis.

The Countess is founder-chairman of the Forward ME Group of ME organisations that meets regularly at the House of Lords.
