Manchester CFS/ME Service for Children and Young People

The Manchester CFS/ME Service for Children and Young People is a regional specialist team for the assessment and treatment of children and young people up to the age of 18 with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/Myalgic Encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) in the Greater Manchester locality.  We can also see referrals from outside of our catchment area, but we require CCG funding for this.

We accept referrals from Consultant Paediatricians or Senior CAMHS Professionals. We provide evidence based treatment to the referred young person, but we also operate a professional consultation service supporting the primary care professionals, or CAMHS colleagues to initiate treatment where appropriate.

We are a multi-disciplinary team offering individualised evidence based treatment packages incorporating Cognitive Behaviour Therapy, Graded Exercise Therapy, Sleep Hygiene and Activity Management and work generically on a one-to-one basis with patients and their families. We have diverse professional backgrounds including Paediatrics, Clinical Psychology, Nursing, Physiotherapy, Occupational Therapy and Social Work.

In addition, we provide training opportunities to primary and tertiary services alongside, liaison and consultation. We network closely with referring agencies and primary care services in discharge planning for on-going follow up.
