Torbay and South Devon ME/CFS Service

COVID-19 – Service updates

We are continuing to work towards restoring the ME/CFS service, and are conducting most assessment clinics via video using Attend Anywhere, with face-to-face appointments being offered only where a video consultation is not possible or appropriate and only available in Totnes, and Newton Abbot Community Hospitals. We are working to provide our therapeutic group programs also via video. This work is being done to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus.
