PACE trial[edit | edit source]

The blog post Diary Day 116: Will Publishing The CFSME PACE trial Data Topple The NHS? shows the many UK agencies involved with the implementation of the PACE trial.

If that scenario happens, what will that mean for:
   UK Medical Research Council
   Department of Health
   the Scottish Chief Scientist’s Office
   The Department for Work and Pensions
   The Wolfson Institute
   Queen Mary University
   3 London hospitals
   1 Oxford hospital
   1 Edinburgh hospital
   The ethics committee who passed the research protocol?
Look at that list…..take one long hard look. They worked together, not alone. They were one body, not separate. They were the partners that brough the PACE trial to its conclusion and the NHS worked on their recommendations.
