We have all seen the article about the Woman with severe ME, who was ‘left to rot by the NHS’, and we were all outraged. Well at least I was initially, and then the quarter dropped.
You see, in the same article, it also states that "her family want her to be treated at a specialist NHS centre in Essex".
And that "Her husband and daughter have appealed three times but their applications have been rejected by NHS Dorset".
The specialist centre is based on the CBT principle that this severely disabling neurological condition is all in the mind of the patient etc.
At the same time, the NHS Dorset are repeatedly denying this lady treatment based on this assumption. So in effect, NHS Dorset are repeatedly saying that CBT for ME is an utter waste of tax payers money.
And I couldn't agree more.
