Advocacy Past Case Study 6

Lady with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome had been going backward and forwards to her G.P. for four years who would not recognise her symptoms and would neither diagnose nor treat her symptoms. Fairway Advocacy attended a G.P. appointment with this lady and made the G.P. aware of the National Institute for Clinical Excellence diagnostic criteria was for a diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. The G.P. admitted that the NICE diagnostic guidelines confirmed the client had CFS and diagnosed her with CFS, prescribed her treatment and referred her to a CFS support group.
