£8.5m for chronic fatigue care

GPs treating patients with chronic fatigue are to get extra help from the Government after it announced an £8.5 million boost for services to treat the condition. The money, to be released between 2004 and 2006, will fund new centres of excellence that will develop services and improve clinical care of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis. GPs will also receive extra support from new community teams, as well as better access to specialist assessment, diagnosis, advice and training.
