Macmillan Step Up service for cancer survivors

We accept referrals from GP's and specialist cancer teams. This service is for adults who have completed their primary treatment for cancer (any type) and are currently in remission or stable but are experiencing significant fatigue which makes everyday tasks difficult.

You can also refer yourself to the team if you meet the criteria above. The Step Up Service Self Referral Form is available in the useful links box to the right of this page or if you would like a hard copy of the form please contact our administrator.

Children and young people's CFS/ME service

We are happy to see any child aged 2-18 with CFS/ME who needs help getting better. They may have mild CFS/ME and need a little help, or have very severe CFS/ME and not be able to get out of bed. We can accept referrals locally, regionally and nationally.

Hospital consultants, GPs or case managers can refer patients. We can accept initial referrals and enquiries over the phone, but referrers are required to make a formal referral via Choose and Book or in writing to:

Dr Esther Crawley, consultant paediatrician, specialist CFS/ME service children and young adults, RNHRD NHS FT, Upper Borough Walls, Bath, BA1 1RL.

Children and young people need to have had CFS/ME for at least three months before a diagnosis can be made. Before a diagnosis is made, children and young people need to have had screening blood tests to rule out other causes of fatigue.

For further information about the service, please contact Heather Hill, team administrator: tel. 01225 473425 email heather.hill2@nhs.net
