SHARE YOUR STORY
If you have a story to share, about any of the issues raised by the survey, then we would really like to hear from you. Please email: firstname.lastname@example.org Keep your initial email to 200 words and enclose a photograph if possible. Should we decide to use your story in charity publications, on the charity website or social media channels, or in the mainstream media, then we will seek your permission before we do.
The NICE Guidelines
The NICE Guideline on ME/CFS and the Guideline for Long Covid, provide a framework of evidence-based clinical recommendations to the NHS and social care services and carry information about symptom recognition, diagnosis, and how you can be supported to improve life quality.
We recommend that you try and read at least the Guideline on ME/CFS which is more comprehensive than the one on Long Covid. Highlight any recommendations that you feel are appropriate to your current situation and discuss them with your GP or specialist at your next appointment. Unfortunately, and this is something we are trying to change, not everyone has access to an ME/CFS specialist service or Long Covid clinic.
These are services that your GP should be able to refer you to and that NICE says should provide a multi-disciplinary approach to supporting people with these conditions. You should be able to receive support from your GP in the absence of a specialist service or clinic and your GP should also follow the NICE Guideline recommendations where possible or at the very least explain why they are not.
