ME/CFS Guidelines

For GPs

ME/CFS GuidelinesHave you ever felt that your general practitioner was struggling to know what you meant when you said you had chronic fatigue syndrome?

Well, from now on every GP in South Australia should have on their shelves a copy of a new set of guidelines on how to diagnose and treat ME/CFS. It’s a document which you can use to discuss your condition with them.

Download it, read it, and use it when next you see your family doctor:
