Chronic Fatigue (CFS/ME) Service

Important information for patients and referrers

There are two services in Oxfordshire dedicated to help patients with CFS/ME: the OUH Fatigue Service and the Oxfordshire Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / ME Service.

The service you are looking at now, on this page, is the OUH Fatigue Service.

In the first place you will normally be seen by one of our Infectious Disease Consultants to help diagnose your condition.

The OUH Fatigue Service provides specialist diagnosis in the Infectious Diseases Department, by a medical consultant and outpatient treatment at the Churchill Hospital.

Following diagnosis, the Infectious Diseases doctors can refer you for assessment for Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and/or Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT) at the Churchill. GET and CBT can only be accessed at the OUH Fatigue Service once you have seen the Infectious Diseases consultant; self-referrals are not accepted.

If you have been referred to the Oxfordshire Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / ME Service you will need to contact them via this link.
(Patients may also be referred to the Oxfordshire Chronic Fatigue Syndrome / ME Service by their GP)

We are a specialist multidisciplinary clinical service that delivers treatment based on the NICE guidelines for CFS/ME for Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.

Our team includes medical consultants, a psychologist and physiotherapist.
