    Survey filled in. A little long but not difficult. A bit emotional as it reminds me how little care I get.

    Lol, what are these Neurological Specialists that they refer to?? I mean I've heard they exist but having never seen a specialist of any sort I've always assumed they are mythical... ;)

    i finally asked m gp for an appointment with a neurologist last summer he made an appointment with liverpool s so called me clinic where the staff were brainwashed into treating it as a wrongful illness syndrome their paper regarding how to treat patients is on this site somewhere .i phoned the clinic and asked them to send me an updated patient info leaflet the secretary point blank refused .so i cancelled my appointment in the best interest of their wellbeing since i have very little patience for idiots.

    yes although the questions did not really give enough multiple choice answers. they should have also asked if your doctor showed any personal knowledge or even an interest other than fobbing you off for years on end with painkillers.although that is better than no palliative care whatsoever.

    If memory serves, there are boxes for open-ended answers and I used the last one for a bit of an essay on what's wrong with the NHS when it comes to ME/CFS.

    Things are so screwed up with the NHS approach to ME/CFS that any questionnaire aimed at illnesses that are treated normally is not going to have appropriate forced-choice questions.

    Ah well! It's good that they're asking - we just have to use those open-ended, "is there anything else you want to say" boxes to get our views across.
