How to Obtain NHS Referral to Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic

The Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic (YFC) 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.

Yorkshire Fatigue Clinic is now the preferred provider for CFS/ME services in North Yorkshire (excluding adults in the Harrogate area) so if you live in North Yorkshire, an NHS referral should be entirely straightforward: just go to your GP and ask. Further details here

An NHS referral may also be possible if you live in Leeds or elsewhere but the process can be complex. We suggest you phone Sue Pemberton at the YFC on 01904 557148 to find out the latest situation. 

There is more information about patients' right to choice under the NHS Constitution on this website and in the 2014 Choice Framework document which you can download here.

The YFC can also be consulted privately. There is a self-referral form on their web site. Phone them on on 01904 557148 for further details including prices.
