ME Research UK welcomed the publication on 29 October of the updated NICE guideline on ME/CFS: diagnosis and management. After many months of hard work by the guideline committee, the new document marks a significant step in the acceptance of ME/CFS as a physical illness and the recognition of appropriate treatments.

You can find several articles on our website summarising the main changes to the guideline and discussing what this may mean for the lives of those affected by ME/CFS.

We’ve secured Charity Champion funding from the Hospital Saturday Fund for the Big Give’s Christmas Challenge which begins at noon on 30 November.
The first £3,800 raised during the week-long event will be matched first by pledgers and then by the Charity Champion. One donation = double the difference.
