Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service

Bristol CFS/ME Service is a specialist NHS Service for people with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME which has been offering evidence-based care since 2004.

We offer an outpatient service to people living in Bristol, North Somerset, and Gloucestershire. We offer a combination of telephone and face-to-face contact, and a telephone counselling service is available for people who have been assessed by the Service. Part of our role is to advise and support other Health Care Professionals in the clinical management of people with CFS/ME.

The clinical team includes Occupational Therapists, Physiotherapists and Psychologists, as we offer a multidisciplinary team approach. We do not currently employ a medic as there are no evidence-based medications for CFS/ME which cannot be prescribed by a GP. We maintain close links with other hospital specialties within North Bristol NHS Trust and at United Bristol Hospital Trust.

The Service can be contacted by email, telephone or by letter or fax. The best days to contact our administrator by telephone are a Monday, Wednesday or Friday.
The Bristol Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service has ongoing involvement in research projects, including a study completed by Dr Jade Thai at the University of Bristol www.bristol.ac.uk which is now in its second phase.
