Overview

Our service is an internationally recognised research and treatment unit, which provides a specialist diagnostic assessment and treatment for people with persistent physical symptoms. This includes fatigue, pain, irritable bowel symptoms and non-cardiac chest pain. We have developed models for understanding and treating persistent physical symptoms and continue to be at the forefront of research and development in this field. We offer specific treatment for chronic fatigue, irritable bowel syndrome, fibromyalgia as well as other persistent physical symptoms.

We also treat fatigue in the context of long-term conditions such as cancer or if people have finished medical treatment but continue to experience symptoms.

Our evidence-based treatments are routinely evaluated. Our goal is to increase the person’s functioning, improve quality of life and wellbeing, reduce the severity of their symptoms and facilitate a return to work or education where possible.
