Leeds & West Yorkshire CFS/ME Service

Leeds & West Yorkshire CFS/ME Service is an NHS specialist service which seeks to meet the needs of people with CFS/ME.

The vast majority of patients who attend the service are Outpatients, but we also offer a Home based Rehabilitation Service to those individuals with CFS/ME who are primarily housebound. - See more at: http://www.leedspft.nhs.uk/our_services/CFS_ME#sthash.nIm5zIxw.dpuf

The vast majority of patients who attend the service are outpatients but they also offer a home-based rehabilitation service for those who are primarily housebound.  They 'also work in collaboration with the National (formerly Yorkshire) Centre for Psychological Medicine, which is an inpatient unit based at the Leeds General Infirmary providing more intensive assessment/rehabilitation for severely affected patients'. Please see our entry below for a link to some personal experiences of this unit.

The clinic offers 'an individualised collaborative multidisciplinary service'. It is run by the Leeds and York Partnership Foundation Trust, which is a mental health trust.

People need to be referred to the service by their GP or other health professional involved in their care.

Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic

The Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic is a clinical assessment and rehabilitation service for people experiencing persistent fatigue. They specialise in chronic fatigue syndrome/ myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) but they also see people with fatigue related to other disorders.

The Clinic has been established by Sue Pemberton, who was previously Clinical Lead at the Leeds and West Yorkshire CFS/ME Service. She has many years of experience in CFS/ME.

The Clinic is the NHS preferred provider for these services in most of North Yorkshire, but not in Harrogate or Leeds. They can, however, be consulted privately if you are outside their area. Please contact them directly for more information including prices.

Consultations by telephone or visual media (such as Skype) and a home-based rehabilitation service for the severely affected are available. 

In addition to the adult service, the Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic can be consulted by young people under 17 (who cannot be seen at the Leeds Service).

The Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic can provide reports for the DWP and PHI. They can also provide specific support from those who wish to maintain, or return to, work or study - including workplace or school/college visits.

For more information about what the clinic offers, please see their web site.
