Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Service
- Children & young people
- Physical health & disability
The Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (ME) Service is a specialist therapy service for people affected by CFS/ME across South Yorkshire & North Derbyshire. The service has two teams – one for adults and one for children/young people.
The service is available to anyone who:
- has a provisional diagnosis of CFS/ME
- are registered with a GP within the region
- who have been unable to self-manage their condition with support from primary care.
Support they can offer
The CFS/ME Service will initially provide you with an assessment to look at how you are managing your symptoms. They will then support you with education about core self-management strategies and a review to explore options for further therapy.
Accessing the service
Adults and young people aged 16 – 18 can be referred directly to the service by their GP.
Children under 16 should initially be referred to a general paediatrician who can then refer to the specialist service following diagnosis.
Covid update 17/08/21: Most services continue under covid-safe conditions but may be experiencing changes to how or when they deliver their service. Contact the CFS/ME Service directly for the latest information.
