Persistent Physical Symptoms Service

 If you are a health professional, please take a look at our Information for Professionals page.

“I really appreciate someone asking about the whole experience of living with symptoms and how I am coping rather than just the physical impact. Why hasn’t this been available before?”

We are a rehabilitation service designed to support people in understanding and managing their symptoms, with the aim of improving both their day to day activities of daily living as well as improving their mood.

The people we support may experience chronic (or persistent) pain or they may have been given a diagnosis such as Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome/ ME, Functional Neurological Symptoms (including Non-Epileptic Attacks) or Medically Unexplained Symptoms.

Our team provide a combination of physical and psychological interventions and includes clinical psychologists and practitioners, physiotherapists, CBT therapists, rehabilitation assistants and assistant psychologists.

Please note that this service is not currently available in South Cumbria. However, we do run a similar service in the south specifically aimed at people with a diagnosis of CFS/ME. Our South CFS/ME Service information leaflet  provides more information on this service.
