The
All Party Parliamentary Group’s Gibson Inquiry into ME in 2006 came to
the conclusion that it was highly inappropriate for psychiatrists such
as Simon Wessely and Peter White et al to act as advisor’s on illnesses
like ME CFS for the Government and the DWP while working as consultants
for the medical insurance industry for companies such as UNUM
Provident. The insurance industry have a clear vested interest in
classifying such illnesses as psychiatric conditions (despite the WHO
classification of ME as a neurological condition ICD 10 G93.3) since
they have to pay out less on policies.
The recommendations of the
Gibson Inquiry called for an appropriate standards body to be set up to
investigate these clear and alarming vested interests. This
recommendation seems to have disappeared in a puff of smoke?
