4 AIM The CCRNC is a multidisciplinary organisation which exists to promote and support the delivery of evidenced based treatment for children, young people and adults with CFS/ME throughout the UK.

5 Objectives To champion evidence-based approaches to the treatment of CFS/ME, such as those provided in the NICE guidelines To provide a forum for the monitoring and dissemination of new evidence for the management of CFS/ME as it emerges To advocate for excellence in the provision of, and for equity of access to, clinical services for children, young people and adults with CFS/ME To support the delivery of services and to enable services to maintain standards of care in the treatment of CFS/ME as set out in the NICE guidelines To champion evidence-based approaches to the treatment of CFS/ME, such as those provided in the NICE guidelines To provide a forum for the monitoring and dissemination of new evidence for the management of CFS/ME as it emerges To advocate for excellence in the provision of, and for equity of access to, clinical services for children, young people and adults with CFS/ME To support the delivery of services and to enable services to maintain standards of care in the treatment of CFS/ME as set out in the NICE guidelines

6 Objectives (2) To use clinical expertise and evidence to influence and inform healthcare policy To promote, facilitate and provide training for clinicians and researchers from all disciplines involved in the diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME To foster research collaborations and communication between clinicians, researchers, professional bodies and charities To use clinical expertise and evidence to influence and inform healthcare policy To promote, facilitate and provide training for clinicians and researchers from all disciplines involved in the diagnosis and treatment of CFS/ME To foster research collaborations and communication between clinicians, researchers, professional bodies and charities

7 Objectives (3) To facilitate patient involvement in the development of evidence-based services and to promote patient centred care. To foster co-operation and collaboration with teams, charities and individuals that share these principles To encourage and facilitate the systematic and rigorous audit, benchmarking and evaluation of CFS/ME assessment, treatment and services To facilitate patient involvement in the development of evidence-based services and to promote patient centred care. To foster co-operation and collaboration with teams, charities and individuals that share these principles To encourage and facilitate the systematic and rigorous audit, benchmarking and evaluation of CFS/ME assessment, treatment and services.

9 Patient & Carer involvement The CCRNC Executive will have no less than two and not more than four patient/carer members….. The patient or carer will be involved in work streams The CCRNC Executive will invite no more than four people drawn from National UK CFS/ME organisations which explicitly support the aims and constitution of the organisation to sit on the Executive committee as either observers or members The CCRNC Executive will have no less than two and not more than four patient/carer members…..

12 What do we want?

13 We all want Excellent services Treatment that works Accessibility for all including children and severely affected Excellent services Treatment that works Accessibility for all including children and severely affected

14 What do we need Research into causes and treatment Benchmarking and audit of services Increased accessibility Research into causes and treatment Benchmarking and audit of services Increased accessibility

17 1.I feel that the professionals who saw me listened to me, 2. It was easy to talk to the professionals who saw me, 3. I was treated well by the professionals who saw me, 4. My views and worries were taken seriously

18 Improved a great deal/ moderately improved (41%) Improved Slightly (22%) Stayed the same (27%)

19 My referral to the CFS/ME service has been a godsend. I wasnt looking for a miracle cure from this clinic and I think that is possibly the right attitude to have because there is no miracle cure. However, it has provided me a real lifeline in giving me belief that I wasnt going mad nor was the illness in my head (unlike my unsupportive GP) and my OT really seemed to understand the condition. Her advice has proved very helpful. Also, my meeting with the dietician was very productive. I absolutely cannot fault the service I received/receive. The support of the service has helped me to go from being nearly housebound to back to work. I had a great feeling of relief when I came to the service because I had a formal diagnosis by a person who is fully informed about the condition. I found my sessions essential – I do not think I would have been able to cope alone without the support given. It was helpful being able to discuss my concerns with a knowledgeable person, we were able to work together towards a recovery programme that was suitable for me. I am so pleased with the service provided and I wish I had found out about the CFS ward when I first got ME. My quality of life would have been better and I would not have been thinking for the past 9 year that it was all in my head. Every aspect of the treatment I received from the CFS Clinic was really helpful, kind, understanding, thoughtful and practical My referral to the CFS/ME service has been a godsend.
