The ME Trust Approach
The ME Trust is committed to a belief in ME as a very real biological illness. We fully support research into the biological causes of the illness and are currently encouraging our patients to sign up to the new BioBank research study.
We aim to treat the physical symptoms of ME with medical advice and intervention, nursing care and physiotherapy. We also acknowledge that any long term illness can have psychological effects, and we therefore offer counselling, emotional support and spiritual direction for people who find that helpful.
This is the model of whole person care which is fundamental to the activities of the ME Trust.
To bring hope and transformational care to all affected by ME/CFS.
We aim to transform the landscape of service provision so that accessible, expert, patient-led care is available across the UK for all those who need it.
To provide multi-disciplinary care and support based on individual needs.
We focus on delivering services directly to people with ME/CFS, their carers and family. We do this in a variety of ways in order to reach people nationwide with all levels of severity of ME.
