These forums can be found using this link:

For clarification then which of these specifically is the forum for ME?

Currently there is no specific forum for ME. We do have a talkpain forum.

If there is a need for a talkME forum, we would be happy to consider creating one.

I think it may be helpful to seek a further opinion.
The data about prognosis I quote comes from the longitudinal studies from the Bath and Bristol service were 96% of children and young people were found to make a full or good recovery.
I note that there has been previous recommendations to consult the TYMES Trust and I want to clarify that the recommendations from this organisation do not follow NICE guidelines and I do not endorse their approach

Dr Grayson, as it was suggested that I contact the TYMES Trust it would be helpful to me if you would expand on which of their recommendations you do not agree with?
I also asked for links to studies on effectiveness/outcomes of GET for children and would be grateful if you would provide some.
