‘Individual’ Care from The M.E. Trust

In over 20 years as Senior Physician at Burrswood Hospital, our medical advisor trustee Dr Paul Worthley helped hundreds of people with ME/CFS.

Dr Paul pioneered an individual approach helping people to ME/CFS, ensuring that each person’s own specific needs and requirements are met. A Kent University showed ‘significant improvements in fatigue symptoms’.

Our experienced clinical team aim to offer each person with ME/CFS the physical, emotional and spiritual care that is mutually agreed as appropriate to their needs. We seek to work in a culture of listening and understanding first, enabling care plans to be shaped around the perceived needs of each individual.

This model of care is ideal for the treatment of people with ME/CFS. The service should be expanded and a centre of excellence established, providing management support for people with ME/CFS.
