FOI 3053 Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

1. Please name the NHS Trust(s) that you represent.  Where more than one NHS Trust is represented, please respond to the following requests for information for each Trust individually. Royal Surrey County Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

2. For the financial year 1st April 2015 – 31st March 2016, please indicate the number of patients in your NHS Trust with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If your Trust deals with both adults and children, then please indicate numbers for both of these patient groups.
a. For the financial year 2015/16, the number of inpatients over 16 years old  in Royal Surrey County Hospital with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome : 22
b. For the financial year 2015/16, the number of inpatients aged 16 and under in Royal Surrey County Hospital with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome : Zero

3. For the financial year 1st April 2015 – 31st March 2016, please indicate the number of patients in your NHS Trust with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome who have been seen by a Dietitian. We are not able to provide this information as we only record reason for referrals and not diagnosis on our patient database. We do know that we don’t get many referrals for patients with CFS.

4. Please indicate whether Dietitians within your NHS Trust have a specific nutritional care plan / care pathway for the management of Chronic  Fatigue Syndrome. Where  this exists, please provide all documentation. We don’t have a care plan / care pathway as patients with CFS  are treated for their symptoms. Patients management is therefore very individual.
