The ME community knows the potential for long lasting health problems from viral infections better than most. That’s why we have campaigned for harmful graded exercise therapy to be removed from the NICE guidelines for ME.
A recent statement from NICE explained that graded exercise therapy is not recommended for people with post-COVID fatigue. However, NICE continues to stand by its recommendation of graded exercise therapy for people with ME, and other NHS guidance for post-COVID rehabilitation still mentions graded exercise therapy without addressing the potential for harm.
Let's make sure all MPs know about this injustice, especially the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care Matt Hancock MP.
MEAction UK have written an open letter. You can amplify this message by asking your MP to take action on your behalf and contact Matt Hancock MP. (If your MP is Matt Hancock, the template email will call for these actions directly!)
