2 March 2011
Dear Department for Work and Pensions,
Please could you explain why this department was involved in part funding the recent PACE trial into the use of CBT & GET on ME/CFS sufferers?
How many other studies, with regard to particular illness' has the DWP been involved in with funding prior to this?
If this is the first study that the DWP has helped to fund, why this trial?
Has the DWP a particular agenda with regard to ME/CFS such as disregarding the WHO classification of it being a NEUROLOGICAL disease?
Currently waiting for a response from Department for Work and Pensions, they must respond promptly and normally no later than 31 March 2011.
