Burrswood Hospital Stories

Jo, Kareen, Anne and Jessica all benefitted from The ME Trust’s whole person care approach when they were treated at Burrswood Hospital in Kent. Since Burrswood closed its facility for patients with ME, The ME Trust has been offering whole person care through telephone consultations, home visits and a limited number of face to face clinic appointments.

“The ME Trust has provided me with ongoing expert support with managing my ME…I’ve had regular access to an understanding GP who has given me sensible and helpful advice covering medication, pacing and symptom management. It’s such a relief to be able to talk to a clinician who actually understands the condition… I’ve not had a miracle recovery but thanks to the ME Trust I now feel hopeful for the future where I had once only felt despair.”
