The CFS/ME service for Nottinghamshire CCG is delivered by PICS (Primary Integrated Community Services Ltd). Patients can be referred from the following CCG areas: Nottingham West, Nottingham North and East, Rushcliffe, and Newark and Sherwood.
PICS is a community pathway where a multidisciplinary team of specialist clinicians help patients with spinal and other persistent pain conditions as well as patients with chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) to get the right diagnosis and treatment, manage their symptoms better and improve their quality of life.The service provides holistic patient centred care within a biopsychosocial framework, with individual treatment or group work depending on patient need. A highly skilled cognitive behavioural therapist (CBT) provides supervision for all staff and work with local substance misuse services and IAPT providers to ensure the mental wellbeing of our patients is looked after.
The service employs a wellbeing practitioner to facilitate the self care part of the pathway. The wellbeing practitioner promotes self-management, forged partnerships with local voluntary groups, undertaken goal setting, exercise referral schemes and weight loss programmes.
