Dr Simon Michael Collin works for Public Health England and is attached to Bristol Medical School. Dr Collin publishes research about chronic fatigue syndrome, and frequently co-authors research with pediatrician Professor Esther Crawley.[1]

Research ethics investigation[edit | edit source]

Dr Collin was co-author or principle author on a number of ME/CFS publications with Esther Crawley which stated an exemption from research ethics approval using a reference to an apparently unrelated study of school absences. In 2019 the University of Bristol announced an investigation into this.

Clinicians should think about PRS in patients with refusal symptoms affecting, eating, social interaction, self-care, mobility and treatment. Patients have extremely high levels of fatigue and/or disability. Postexertional fatigue and disrupted sleep occur but patients are less likely to have characteristic symptoms of CFS/ME such as unrefreshing sleep. The diagnosis of PRS is important as the treatment is different

Myalgic encephalomyelitis or M.E. has different diagnostic criteria to chronic fatigue syndrome; neurological symptoms are required but fatigue is an optional symptom.<ref name="ICP2011primer">{{Citation
