The “Ethics approval” statement in this article has been amended to read:Ethics approval: The patient data used in this study were collected as part of routine clinical practice and anonymised for the National Outcomes Database. Under the Governance Arrangements for Research Ethics Committees {September 2011), ethical review is not required for research limited to the use of previously collected, non-identifiable patient information.

In addition, the following two sentences have been amended.

  • The second paragraph under Strengths and limitations should read “Adults and children were from specialist CFS/ME services in the UK and the Netherlands, so the results may not be generalisable to other settings, such as primary care.

  • The second sentence of second paragraph under Discussion should read “Adults and children were from specialist CFS/ME services in the UK and the Netherlands, so the results may not be generalisable to other settings, such as primary care.”
