 GETSET Data Monitoring and Ethics Committee (DMEC): Astrid Fletcher, Charlotte Feinman and Irwin Nazareth who has co-authored MEcfs articles with Esther Crawley and Peter D. White ...

 PACE trial Data Monitoring and Ethics Committee (DMEC): Professor Paul Dieppe (initial chair), Dr Charlotte Feinmann (liaison psychiatrist) and Professor Astrid Fletcher (final Chair, epidemiologist).

 In 2012 a group of doctors in the UK wrote a letter to the Independent on Sunday and all British newspapers to condemn the harassment and death threats by patients of Simon Wessely of which he had never provided any evidence; the foi commissioner last year ruled that the psychiatrists had grossly exaggerated things/made things up and that there were no death threats. Amongst those signing that letter were: the three principal investigators of the PACE trial (Peter White, Michael Sharpe and Trudie Chalder), Alastair Miller, Rona Moss-Morris, Charlotte Feinmann, Esther Crawley, and MEGA's chairman Stephen Holgate.
