OUH CFS/ME Treatment Service

The Chronic Fatigue Treatment Service is part of the Infectious Diseases Department based at the Churchill Hospital.

It provides NICE-recommended treatment to patients diagnosed with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS/ME) in the consultant-led diagnostic service.

Treatments offered to patients are personalised programmes of Graded Exercise Therapy (GET) and Cognitive Behavioural Therapy (CBT). Patients are seen from across Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.

The service aims to assist patients in overcoming CFS/ME. It recently contributed to a large national randomised controlled treatment trial of treatments for CFS -

A comprehensive set of assessment and end-of-treatment measures are used to aid clinical work and enable evaluation of outcomes.

The service contributes data to the National Outcomes Database for CFS/ME which collates data from services across the UK. An internal audit of patient satisfaction in 2014 suggested very high levels of satisfaction in all aspects of the service.
