MESH cornwall Patron: Professor A J Pinching

Professor Pinching leads the CFS/ME Service at the Royal Cornwall Hospital in Truro. He is one of thirteen clinical champions specialising in CFS/ME across England. Professor Pinching is an active clinician caring personally for large numbers of CFS/ME patients. During his time as a consultant he has seen over 4,000 people with the condition. He leads a very strong Multi-Disciplinary Team, practising a patient-centred approach. In a recent interview with Kezia Clark, Professor Pinching spoke very highly of MESH cornwall and its relationship with the CFS/ME Service.
...
" Professor Pinching also remarked, "MESH cornwall is an impressive and unsung resource. The commitment and effort is excellent considering that it is voluntary and many of those on the committee have CFS/ME. Having spoken regularly at MESH quarterly meetings Professor Pinching feels that there is a very positive response at these events, " people find it helps to talk to someone about what can be a very complicated illness." Professor Anthony J Pinching is also Associate Dean for Cornwall and Professor of Clinical Immunology at the Peninsula Medical School, where he is developing a locally appropriate and focused research environment, including his own research plans on CFS/ME. In addition he has substantial advisory and public policy roles including Deputy Chairman of the Independent CFS/ME Working Party to the Chief Medical Officer.

THE MENTAL HEALTH MOVEMENT: PERSECUTION OF PATIENTS?

The published views of Professor Anthony Pinching

...
Professor Anthony Pinching
One of those who supported the Wessely School view was the Deputy Chair of the Working Group, Anthony Pinching, who at that time was Professor of Immunology at St Bartholomew's Hospital, London. He became notorious for the publication during his tenure of an article (Chronic fatigue syndrome. Anthony J Pinching. Prescribers' Journal 2000:40:2:99-106 published by the Department of Health itself, but now discontinued) which caused great distress to the ME community, in which he made his views clear:
...
Pinching did not even mention ME or the key manifestations of it and he expressly stated that the fatigue found in CFS is " not related to ongoing exertion ": this was a particularly odious statement because in ME, there is always post-extertional muscle fatigue, without which the diagnosis of ME is untenable.
To the consternation of many people with ME, Pinching is now Medical Adviser to the charity Action for ME, which even changed its logo to include "chronic fatigue" but was compelled to remove the words and revert to "Action for ME" by the Charity Commission.
...
The team which carried out the systematic review of the literature had another team to advise them, since none of them had any clinical experience of "CFS/ME"; again, to no-one's surprise, the key adviser on this "advisory" team was Simon Wessely, assisted by Anthony Pinching and Christopher Clark.


A Review, with References, of the Role of Dr (now Professor) Simon Wessely

This meeting had nothing to do with the meeting with Department of Health officials in February 1998,attended by consultant immunologist Dr Anthony Pinching and members of the UK ME Association, although the combined effects clearly supported each other.
