  1. I think it is a very good thing that there are no “specialist” ME/CFS centres in Scotland. Nobody need waste their time and energy on CBT and GET, no precious NHS resources are wasted on running anything.

    It would have been good if the original (2009) Scottish guidelines (unwatered down by AfME to be compatible with NICE) had been published, but my own gp refused, point blank, to read either version anyway.

  2. I would recommend folk to send a link to this interview to family and friends alike, as it highlights both the medical aspects of ME and the human toll.
    And you did really well Charles. Thank you!

  3. Thank you so much for doing all of this! I feel you work so hard to help us with ME and sometimes you are in a very difficult position. I would not want you to be treated by the GMC like Dr Nigel Speight and Dr Sarah Myhill have. Long may you carefully dodge all the obstacles. Many thanks again. I will certainly support your brilliant idea of Xmas Big Give being used to fund a metabolomics study to see if the Naviaux, Hanson, etc. studies can be replicated. Presumably without the help of the BPS groups and using the ME/MS Biobanks for samples?! Goes without saying really, I know.!
