MEA place to go for details of NHS specialist services, says Government minister | 12 July 2016

July 12, 2016


The ME Association website has been named in Parliament as the place to go for information about NHS specialist services in the UK for people with ME/CFS.

The Minister for Public Health, Jane Ellison MP, had been asked in a written Parliamentary question how many clinical commissioning group areas provided specialist services for people diagnosed with myalgic encephalomyelitis.

On June 6, she told her questioner – Jamie Reed, MP for Copeland in Cumbria:

“The vast majority of services for people with chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) are the responsibility of local clinical commissioning groups. The Department does not hold information about the configuration of local services. However, we understand that there a number of clinics that specialise in the treatment of CFS/ME around the country.

“The ME Association has published a list of these services, available at:
