Dear Birmingham and Solihull Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust,

I have been advised that you treat people with chronic fatigue syndrome and I am seeking information on the outcomes of patients who presented with chronic fatigue syndrome at your clinic during 2016-2017.

i) Number of participants with chronic fatigue syndrome presenting.
ii) How the effectiveness of any treatment program for chronic fatigue syndrome is measured.
iii) Baseline health, at initial presentation.
iv) How baseline health is measured.
v) Health post treatment.
vi) How health post treatment is measured.
