Quality of care
From MEpedia, a crowd-sourced encyclopedia of ME and CFS science and history
Quality of care for ME/CFS patients is usually poor, due to a combination of factors including discrimination, lack of treatment options, lack of research, and lack of medical education and public understanding.
- An ME Association survey found that when asked to rate the management of their ME/CFS by their GPs, 16% of British patients said it was mixed, 23% said it was poor, and another 23% said it was dreadful. A further 18% had no contact with their GPs - often because of prior bad experiences.
