Watch the Westminster Hall debate on PACE

A Westminster Hall debate on the PACE trial will take place on Tuesday, 20th Feb., from 11 to 11:30 a.m. Carol Monaghan MP has secured the debate.

The debate will discuss the flawed science behind PACE, and how it has affected policy on Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) in the UK, forming a pervasive perception of ME as a psychological disease that can be cured with graded exercise therapy (GET) and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT).

Actions your MP can take right now!

Once your MP learns about PACE and the neglect of people with ME, there are actions they can take right now. Follow-up with your MP following the Westminster Hall debate, and suggest that they take the following actions right away:

  • Your MP can act now by signing the EDM (271) NICE Guideline on ME that removes graded exercise therapy (GET) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) from the NICE guidelines on ME.
  • Encourage your MP to watch the award-winning ME documentary, Unrest, that was shown in the House of Commons, available on Netflix.
