The Chronic Fatrigue service is a specialist service for adults aged 18 and over living with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS)/myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME).

The interdisplinary team supports patients to:

  • Gain an understanding of ME/CFS
  • Learn different strategies and skills to reduce the suffering caused by ME/CFS
  • Try out different ways of responding to understandable feelings of sadness, anger, worry or fear about ME/CFS
  • Look at life problems and stressors, which can further affect how people cope with your patient's ME/CFS
