star this property answer text <p>No central assessment has been made of chronic fatigue syndrome/myalgic encephalomyelitis (CFS/ME) clinical services established between 2004 and 2006. The commissioning of services for people with CFS/ME is a local matter, and the management of patients within such services is the responsibility of the commissioners, providers and clinicians responsible for their care. Clinical commissioning groups have a duty to exercise their functions effectively, efficiently and economically</p><p> </p><p>Since its publication in 2007, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) clinical guideline on the management of CFS/ME in adults and children, which set outs best practice on the care, treatment and support of people with the condition, has supported the local National Health Service in delivering services for people with the condition. The guidance recognises the challenges in managing a condition for which there is no definitive diagnostic test, no clear understanding of the causes and process of disease and no cure. The guidance is also clear that there is no one form of treatment to suit every patient and that treatment and care should take into account the personal needs and preferences of the patient. NICE is currently reviewing the guidance to ensure it reflects the latest available evidence and a decision regarding this matter is expected shortly.</p><p><br></p>
