Fibromyalgia Service


About us

Fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) describes a collection of symptoms which affect the soft tissues, muscles, tendons and ligaments of the body. These connective tissues consist of fibres which have become over-sensitised, resulting in widespread and variable pain throughout the body. This can lead to poor, unrefreshing sleep which in turn contributes to an ongoing cycle of chronic pain and fatigue.

Our hospital provides a specialist, multidisciplinary approach to the assessment and management of fibromyalgia.

Why choose us?

Our service is expert, multi-disciplinary and focussed on the individual needs of each patient. We have over five years' experience of developing and leading a condition-specific exercise and education outpatient programme.

We work closely with expert patients in the management of FMS. We are proactive in providing education about FMS management to other healthcare professionals. We were finalists in the 2010 National Advancing Healthcare Awards for the management of long-term conditions.
