"Limited treatment time for chronic fatigue"

About: Breightmet Health Centre / Chronic fatigue/ME service

(as the patient),

I have M.E. I am currently in receipt of a service that is running out of time due to a limit placed upon the service by the NHS.

I am being treated under the CFS/ME team at Breightmet Health Centre who are doing an amazing job. I am at present undergoing massage therapy to aid my toxic drainage, but the time is ticking and pressure is on the team to end this treatment.

It has been invaluable to me and I have seen good results since I have been receiving this treatment. It makes me feel like the NHS are not treating my disability as important as others.

The CFS/ME team at Breightmet Health Centre are wonderful and have made steps to improve my quality of life.

My suggestion is to keep the treatment going to help more M.E. sufferers like me.
