The work of RCHT’s chronic illness services highlighted by national publication…

‘ME Essential’, a national magazine that covers news and stories specific to the study and treatment of chronic illnesses, has recently highlighted the work of Carol Wilson, Specialty Lead & Clinical Specialist Therapist for the Cornwall & Isles of Scilly Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ME Service, based here at RCHT.

Carol became the subject of a two-page interview in the magazine, published by the ME Association, after she was nominated by two individual families that had used the RCHT CFS/ME Service and were left overwhelmed by the excellent standard of care and support provided by Carol and her team.

“I was absolutely delighted to be interviewed”, explains Carol. “Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an often generalised and misdiagnosed condition. Many patients are often given poor advice or dismissed without further treatment. An acknowledgement like this is absolutely brilliant for us as it allows us to really get the message across and to better promote the services and information that we can provide for people living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and other related conditions.”

“We’re a small team of seven people”, continues Carol. “Together, we provide support for people living with ME and CFS conditions across the whole region. To be featured in a magazine published by the ME Association is not only a fantastic tribute to all the hard work and commitment that the team demonstrate on a day to day basis, but it’s a way of raising awareness of what we do and the services that are available to people.”
