I have just received this new statement on in-patient services at Burrswood from Hannah Clifton at the ME Trust


Burrswood Hospital In-patient Service

As a long-term supporter of Burrswood, the ME Trust has been in touch with Burrswood’s CEO to confirm the position with regard to in-patient services; in the light of the recent announcements and correspondence concerning proposals for Burrswood to cease offering in-patient services from the end of 2016.

The ME Trust has been assured that in-patient services are currently being provided during 2016 as they have been in the past and that it is ‘business as usual’. Anyone interested in accessing Burrswood’s ME/CFS services should therefore continue to contact the Admissions Department at Burrswood, or the ME Trust. We will provide further updates as new information becomes available.

The ME Trust very much hopes to continue to work with Burrswood, and others, in an effort to ensure that this important and pioneering service can continue and flourish.
