Following our successful #SpeakUp campaign with Healthwatch Sheffield, we have worked in consultation with members to produce an information sheet for GPs and other healthcare practitioners. This sheet outlines the key recommendations for treating ME/CFS from the updated NICE guideline (2021). You can preview the sheet below:
We are keen to ensure that all GPs in the area have up to date information about the illness, and are aware of what support is appropriate - and inappropriate - to offer. We would be really grateful if you could help us by sharing the sheet with your GP, and letting us know which GP practice you have shared it with.
This will allow us to make sure we are reaching as many GPs in the region as possible, and ensure that people with ME/CFS in the region are receiving the right kind of care and support.
If you would like to learn more about the NICE guideline for ME/CFS, you can find out more on our website here, or read the 3-page summary here from our Chair of Trustees, Carolyn. Thank you so much for your help! - SMEFG Team
