Paul Burstow letter

In a recent letter in response to questions about local treatment for fibromyalgia Paul Burstow replied as the minister with responsibility for long term conditions.

He spoke about the usual argument that it is for local PCTs to decide on options available and individual treatment. He also mentioned, as previous ministers have, the initiative we created to supply all GPs with an information pamphlet about fibromyalgia.

The new information included in the letter was the reference to our medical information booklet for the health professional team and we are pleased that this has his endorsement in this way.

He is hopeful that the new proposals being put through parliament at present will mean all long term conditions will be managed more effectively.

We will be writing to Paul Burstow outlining our concerns for the future and asking for a meeting to discuss how best to ensure fibromyalgia is effectively managed.
